What can you expect?
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 the comfort of their own homes. The ESFF Virtual Film Festival was screened through FavaTV, giving attendees free access to watch the Short Films officially selected for the 2020 Red Carpet Gala, as well as the officially selected Long Shorts (films up to 60 minutes from amazing Albertan and international filmmakers).
The virtual screening was successful and we were thrilled to make this event so widely accessible. Thus, the ESFF Virtual Film Festival will continue to be an annual event!
Short films by Albertan filmmakers selected for the 2021 Edmonton Short Film Festival will be available for viewing October 16th, 2021, and the Long Shorts on October 17th 2021. Both events will take place online and in person depending on market conditions.
