Mission / description "TiSFF is a festival for purists and film lovers.
It has the best selection of films of any festival we have attended.
I watched over 50 of the best short films at TiSFF 2016".
Dejan Mrkic , director of SILENCE /U.K.

It always struck me how audacious the program of TISFF was.
Something I profoundly admire as pushing boundaries is exactly what art and here more specifically, short films should be all about....people start to realize getting selected for TiSFF means a lot, even more so than for other Oscar Qualifying or big name short film festivals... what TISFF stands for: giving a voice to people who might one day change the landscape of Cinema.
Wim Vanacker, director & Head of NISI MASA

The quality of the films presented was extremely impressive, which made me even more proud of being part of the game…The creativity of the films chosen was fantastic. And the way films were combined to provide some amazing programs was clever and sensitive.

Deadline for submissions is July 31, 2016
attention:
*** English subs are required even if dialogues are in english.
..an international short film festival, focusing on cutting-edge fiction films. However documentaries, animation, experimental films of outstanding quality will certainly be considered.

From the four corners of the planet, TiSFF's team selects with demanding criteria cutting-edge works of cinematic art representing the new narrative and aesthetic trends in tomorrow's filmmaking.

TiSFF is an annual event dedicated to pure cinema, not cinema as an excuse to create an event . and thus attracts a cinephile public that knows cinema very well, knows what is looking for, where to find it and what cinematic quality and love for cinema means.

Wim Vanacker, awarded director & Head of NISI MASA writes:
.."it always struck me how audacious the program of TISFF was. Something I profoundly admire as pushing boundaries is exactly what art and here more specifically, short films should be all about, be it as a director or a programmer.
,,,"As I work with many European Film Professionals as NISI MASA’s Head of the Script Department, it’s something I notice over and over again, how TISFF is growing and gaining importance as people start to realize getting selected for TISFF means a lot, even more so than for other Oscar Qualifying or big name short film festivals as in Yiannis and his vision of Cinema we trust. "....

Every year, TiSFF also showcases “special” programs as tributes to Danish Cinema, Basque Cinema, Cinema Quebecois, Polish Cinema, Russian Cinema, Belgian Cinema, as well as tributes to film schools as LA FEMIS, LODZ .
