BASH - Bay Area Shorts Film Festival taking place at the ROXIE Historical Theater in San Francisco, CA- Each year, the Annual BASH Film Festival will continue its tradition of showcasing a diverse sampling of BAY AREA made shorts and mini features, award-winning directors along with amateurs breaking in the industry and blowing everyone away. From EPIC Comedies, Horrors to Serious Dramas, our selections are eclectic and all across the board!!!!

Audience choice winners will get a Trophy and continue to screen a few more times throughout the year at our various festivals throughout the Bay! All finalists that haven't participated in our film challenges get 2 free passes to a future production challenge of their choice.

MUST BE BAY AREA MADE, INCLUDES SACRAMENTO, SANTA CRUZ AND SURROUNDING AREAS WITHIN 60 MILES OF THE SF BAY AREA.

**Important to fill out the filmmaker info for the submission, if it is not stated with proof, or clearly made in the Bay Area or 60 mile radius, it will be automatically put in the 'no' pile. Films won't be watched all the way through if it is not clear within a few minutes or, if not stated in the info section of the film. STRICTLY Bay Area.. Thanks!

  • This is a little festival that deserves support and growth. Most of the films were worth seeing and the convivial atmosphere lent itself to connecting with other filmmakers. Here's hoping BASH continues to expand and prosper!

    My first time submitting into BASH and I had the chance to win best film this year (2018) and I am very grateful ! Loved coming out and supporting as well being involved in the bay area film community. This event is something I will absolutely be returning next year.
