Mission / description The Palm Springs International ShortFest, Short Film Festival & Film Market is celebrated as one of the most acclaimed short film showcases in the world.
The Palm Springs International ShortFest has become known world-wide for the extraordinary community of filmmakers it attracts, and for the quality and scope of its programming. Showcasing over 330 short films each year from more than 50 countries, with a library of more than 3,000 films available to film buyers, industry and press in its concurrent Short Film Market, ShortFest is the largest festival of its kind in America.
The Festival offers twenty awards in six competitive categories (including student and non-student work), with cash awards or film production prizes in each category (over $100,000 worth of prizes, in all), as well as the “Bridging the Borders”, "Best of the Fest" and "Future Filmmaker" awards. All first place winners in the Live Action, Animation and Best of the Fest categories are automatically qualified for nomination consideration by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Since the Festival's inception, 80 short films featured at the event have gone on to garner Academy Award nominations.
Festival events include nightly receptions, as well as seminars, master classes and scheduled 'one-on-one' meetings with industry experts and filmmaking professionals, free to all filmmakers who participate in the Festival. Best of all, all films submitted to the Festival are eligible for free inclusion in the Short Film Market and made available to all attending industry and press for viewing at our Film Market headquarters & screening center.

This festival is swarmed with filmmakers and industry professionals! It's a very LA/Hollywood crowd since it's so close to LA. Bring lots of postcards - I was amazed at how much paraphanalia was strew around the filmmakers lounge. The Palm Springs audience is very enthusiastic and engaged. Filmmakers in attendence have a chance for Q&A after their screening and there were lots of thoughtful questions. Good panels and parties too. Corrie Around 4 years ago
