Catch up-and-coming filmmakers featuring their finest flicks at the Palm Springs International ShortFest, which is put on by the Palm Springs International Film Society and is the largest film festival of its kind in North America. Each year, approximately 325 short films are selected out of over 4,200 submissions to be screened at the Camelot Theatre in the Oscar® and BAFTA®-qualifying festival, with over 100 of the past winners advancing to be nominated or even win Academy Awards.
Each screening will feature 4-10 short films, all curated and blocked together to cover a central theme. In addition to the film screenings, the festival features a ShortFest Forum with panel sessions, master classes, and roundtables boasting working industry professionals sharing their insights into the film industry and tackling the latest trends in the business, as well as provide networking opportunities.
Running June 20-26, the Palm Springs International ShortFest is an excellent appetizer until the Palm Springs International Film Festival returns in January. For more information, including a list of events, tickets, and more, visit the ShortFest website.
