Short Film Program

As technology allows greater access to short films as well as filmmaking tools, an increasing number of people are turning to short filmmaking as a form of expression and an opportunity to explore creative freedom. The fact that we received 200 more submissions in this category than last year speaks to that. Within them we saw a wave of truly original and outrageously distinctive films united by their uncompromised spirit. 


Below you will find our short film program for 2020.  There is over 12 hours of film for you to watch. The program will remain online up until midnight on Sunday September 6th.  Take your time and watch these brilliant shorts at your own leisure over the three days of the festival 

Vote For Your Favourite Short Film

There will be an award for Best Short Film.  The winning short will be selected by our panel of judges and the winner  will be announced on Sunday evening, the final day of the festival.  There will also be an audience choice award.  This award will be voted by you the viewer.   To make your vote just scroll to the bottom of this page. or just click
