The ArtCity Short Film Festival (Est. in 2014) celebrates the art of film making by setting the stage for independent filmmakers from Cameroon and the Rest of the World, to showcase their film talent and be discovered. This will be the 4th edition of an annual event. For this 4th edition, we are anticipating over 800+ short films submissions from around the globe. ArtCity Short Film Festival aims to rapidly become a well-known venue for writers, producers, and actors to screen a variety of independent short films, while also providing workshops with industry professionals for budding filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike.
Just like the first, second, third, and fourth, the 5th edition will take place in Buea (Cameroon). This represents a moment of huge cultural importance for the projection of short films. Local and international film-making setups are invited to meet on common ground, using one language… The one we all love and know best – Film!
