Canada Shorts – Canadian and International Short Film Fest

Canada Shorts – Canadian and International Short Film Fest

 

Type: Regular shortfilm festival
Location: Multiple, Canada
Start Month: December


Description

To champion short filmmaking and strive to award quality shorts regardless of their budget. Many festivals only award shorts that have been shot for many thousands of dollars. We want to also ensure indie filmmakers have the opportunity for festival success and will award additional points to shorts produced on a micro budget or minimal crew. Canada Shorts works hard to recognize quality filmmaking and tends to offer Awards to 100+ short films per season. All films that receive an award will receive both an Official Selection laurel as well as an Award Winner laurel.
