The Edmonton Short Film Festival is bringing a specially curated selection of short films for you to enjoy in a safe and inclusive setting.

That’s why ESFF is @ Kaleido Festival! We’ll be screening short films as part of this free, family-friendly event presented by Arts on the Ave.

These short films, by Alberta independent filmmakers, offer a diverse range of stories – all of which remind us of the human desire to explore and connect. Stories that evoke feelings, are reflective of us and our communities. Stories that fulfill our search for information and influence our outlook on everyday life – bringing us out of our daily routine and allowing us to encounter new places, experiences and ideas.

We are thankful for the support of EPCOR’s #HeartAndSoulFund!

This fund was designed to help the arts community and charitable organizations build resilience and deliver programming that uplifts Edmontonians. Learn more at
