What can you expect at the Edmonton Short Film Festival’s Red Carpet Gala?

Expect to be entertained by a variety of projects … our adjudication team will review thousands of minutes of film and narrow these down to 90 minutes of laughter, screams, tears and amazement for you to enjoy at our Gala event on Saturday night.

You may see everything from a 30-second trailer to a 15-minute short film. We screen comedies, horrors, dramas, documentaries, web episodes, trailers, animation and experimental films and videos … we encourage filmmakers to dig out their previously screened and award-winning projects that they may want to show again.

Enjoy the paparazzi atmosphere as you get your complimentary photo taken in front of the ESFF’s custom backdrop.

What else is there for you besides watching some great short films? This is a red carpet, Hollywood-inspired event! Make sure to get your photo taken in front of the Festival banner … then follow our Facebook page to tag and download your photo. Post messages and photos on our Twitter Wall. Interact and be part of the excitement!

Included in your ticket price is free pre-movie popcorn, Drift Food Truck menu items and live music over the intermission. A cash bar is also available before the screening and during the intermission. Ticket sales are now open.

The 2017 Edmonton Short Film Festival Gala will be held on Saturday evening, October 14th. The FREE Family Fun Film Festival will be on Sunday afternoon, October 15th. Both events will be held  at the  Royal Alberta Museum Theatre 12845-102 Avenue, Edmonton, AB T5N 0M6.
