Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Palm Springs International ShortFest is the largest short film event in North America.  Highly competitive, ShortFest receives more than 5000 entries each year from filmmakers around the globe.  Of those, more than 300 are selected and screened in 90-minute programs.  Decidedly casual and unconventional, this is a film-lovers dream week in Palm Springs.

An Oscar®, BAFTA® and Los Premios Goya-qualifying festival, ShortFest has presented more than 100 shorts that have gone on to receive Oscar® nominations and/or awards.

With hundreds of filmmakers and industry professionals in attendance and an audience of 22,000 avid filmgoers, ShortFest is not what you might expect to find in Palm Springs in June.

Films and event schedule will be announced and available online May 28.  The program will run in the Desert Sun on June 9.

Tickets are available on the Palm Springs International ShortFest web site.
