The festival has a mission to "inspire, empower and encourage the emerging filmmakers from around the globe", so aspiring filmmakers who attend Palm Springs ShortFest can participate in four days of forums including master classes, roundtables, panels and events. The forums feature industry professionals who share their first-hand experiences with participants, who can then network and converse with professionals and other attendees. The types of topics historically covered at the forums include such important things as casting, financing, pitching and navigating the international film festival circuit.
Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs will host screenings of 56 curated films throughout the festival, and industry attendees can view over 4100 festival submissions in the Film Market. There will be opening and closing night screenings and receptions as well as other special events throughout the festival.
