This year’s Red Carpet Gala had a MASKuerade theme.

Welcome  to Alberta’s only film festival that is open to any creation date, pays screening fees, gives awards and presents a cash prize. Anything up to 60 minutes!

The Edmonton Short Film Festival is dedicated to the elevation of Independent film and the local film community, showcasing Alberta filmmakers. We love films that are on the fringe of the “normal” festival market and include diverse projects (newly created or “dusted off” favourites) including: trailers, music videos, web series, commercials, short films.

Join us in 2021 as we celebrate our 9th year!  Submissions open May 1, 2021.
