As a film festival director, I can honestly say this is truly one of the best short film festivals I have ever attended. It prioritizes screening films in addition to being engaging and fun, with constant filmmaker interaction, daily parties. Zero screening conflicts-- it is possible to watch *400 short films* if you choose. They screen continuously from noon until midnight in a single venue, the beautiful TCL theater in the heart of Hollywood. Affordable parking on site, affordable individual tickets available for guests, it is truly a festival that all film lovers as well as keen filmmakers can enjoy. Unlike a lot of festivals where the actual substance of films gets lost in the logistical difficulties of multiple venues and conflicting schedules Hollyshorts lets you truly watch it all. The wonderful filmmaker's conference happens simultaneously, though, and there are daily parties, but all is closeby so you can duck back in the theater as soon as possible. Viva la filmmaking fire!
