  • PALM SPRINGS INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL & FILM MARKET
  • Now in its 15th year, the Palm Springs International Festival of
    Short Films has become known world-wide for the extraordinary community
    of filmmakers it attracts, and for the quality and scope of its
    programming. This celebrated event is the largest festival of its kind
    in America, showcasing over 320 short films each year from more than 40
    countries, with a library of more than 2,700 films available to film
    buyers, industry and press in the Film Market running concurrently with
    the Festival.
  • 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 14 years, 65 films from our line-up went on to
    become Academy Award nominees. Our Short Film Market, which runs during
    the Festival, encompasses over 2,700 new short films and viewing
    facilities for attending industry, press and filmmakers.
  • Last year’s ShortFest drew more than 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 Sunday evening, June 28, 2009. Filmmakers
    not present will be notified in writing.

Winning films will be screened again for audiences on Monday, June
29, 2009. Prints and tapes will not be released from the festival until
the winning films have been announced.

  • 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 ( over
$100,000 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, 65 short films featured at the event have
gone on to garner Academy Award nominations.
