The forum also provides the necessary networking opportunities and information about new practices and trends in the film industry to help these filmmakers reach their cinematic goals.
Media and industry professionals can also take advantage of ShortFest's Film Market, the only one of its kind in North America with over 3,500 titles that can be seen on over 30 screening stations. This feature offers filmmakers the opportunity for further exposure of their films that were not included in the festival.
Filmgoers can take part in several special events during the festival, starting with the Opening Night kickoff of upbeat and comedy films on June 20. Throughout the festival, casual nightly parties let you mix and mingle with other film lovers as well as the filmmakers themselves (there are even some surprises!). The perfect finale for ShortFest awaits you at the Closing Night Awards on June 25, where top films and filmmakers - selected by festival-goers and film professionals - are honored, then top off the entire experience at the Closing Night Party.
The Palm Springs International ShortFest is an ideal way to see lots of unique films, talk with filmmakers and meet other film aficionados - it's a must-see of Palm Springs!
