WELCOME FILM MAKERS AND FILM LOVERS!
The Edmonton Short Film Festival (ESFF) showcases Alberta filmmakers outside of the “normal” festival market and features diverse projects (newly created or “dusted off” favourites) including: trailers, music videos, web series, commercials, short films … as long as it’s less than 15 minutes, we’ll accept it! The ESFF is dedicated to the elevation of Alberta Independent film and the local film community
