PALM SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL & FILM MARKET

The Palm Springs International ShortFest, Short Film Festival & Film Market, celebrated as one of the most acclaimed short film showcases in the world, will take place at the Camelot Theatres in Palm Springs June 21 - 27, 2011. Film submissions are now being accepted through March 1, 2011.

Now in its 17th year, 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 320 short films each year from more than 40 countries, with a library of more than 2,900 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, 75 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.

Executive Director Darryl Macdonald said, "The Festival and its associated Film Market is ranked the largest in North America. It is also consistently noted as one of the most filmmaker friendly and finest organized short film festivals in the World. Over the course of the Festival's first 11 years, 49 films from our line-up went on to become Academy Award nominees. Our Short Film Market, which runs during the Festival, encompasses over 2,200 new short films and viewing facilities for attending industry, press and filmmakers.

Last year's ShortFest drew almost 15,000 attendees, including over 500 filmmakers, press and industry buyers and representatives and is truly a world-class event. Each year over two-thirds of the films presented at the Festival are acquired by distributors, networks or online companies, or find sales agents. In addition to attracting the top North American and European distributors and sales agents of short films, agents, studio and specialty-channel representatives attend the Festival in search of the next generation of writers and directors.

Competition: ShortFest is a competitive Film Festival. Films accepted are automatically eligible for the applicable competition category. A Jury comprised of filmmakers and industry representatives will screen all competition finalists, deliberate and announce the results at Awards Night on June 28, 2010. Filmmakers not present will be notified in writing.

Awards: The Palm Springs ShortFest is one of the few qualifying festivals for the Best Short Film Awards of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The Festival includes twenty awards in six competitive categories, with award cash or film production prizes in each category ($70,000 worth of prizes, in all), as well as "Best of the Fest" and "Future Filmmaker" awards. All first place winners in the Live Action and Animation categories are automatically eligible for nomination consideration by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Since the Festival's inception, 53 short films featured at the event have gone on to garner Academy Award nominations.
