Attend - Edmonton Short Film Festival


What can you expect?

Join us for the 2021 Edmonton Short Film Festival!

  • Seeking to elevate our local film community, our adjudicators have chosen captivating short films by Alberta filmmakers to be screened at the 2021 Edmonton Short Film Festival!

The collection of Alberta short films will be showcased at the Metro Cinema  at 8712 – 109 St. NW, Edmonton on October 16th, 2021. Program begins at 7pm.

Make your appearance at the gala and prepare to be taken aback by the unparalleled quality and diversity you’ll see on the screen. Categories range from comedy to drama, from horror to documentary, the extremely important Social Justice category, and everything in between. In the end, your vote will help crown a winner for Best Short Film of 2021.

Your ticket will also give you access to the complementary online screening of the Gala selected films by Alberta filmmakers AND an additional 17 films up to 60 minutes in length from filmmakers from all over the world! We call this our Long Shorts collection.

In 2020, despite newfound challenges, we were determined to keep the festival alive, and continue to bring our community together for the love of film. That’s when we introduced The ESFF Virtual Film Festival! Attendees were able to have the Red Carpet experience from anywhere, in the comfort of their own homes.

In 2021, we will once again be uploading all films to our FavaTV platform. Short films by Albertan filmmakers selected for the 2021 Edmonton Short Film Festival and the Long Shorts selections will all be available for viewing from Sunday, October 17th at noon – Wednesday, October 20th at midnight. Tickets available via FilmFreeway.
