The Cannes Short Film Festival screens innovative international short films at the world's most important film destination: Cannes and the French Riviera.

With an emphasis on new talent, discovery and professionalism, CSFF’s vibrant programme of films and events combines a commitment to independent cinema’s ideals with a sound understanding of indie filmmaking possibilities.

CSFF brings together filmmakers from around the world for an outstanding presentation of cinematic excellence and brand new directing talent. CSFF began in 2014 at the gorgeous Studio 13 MJC Picaud cinema in downtown Cannes; then, requiring more capacity, the festival then moved to Cinema Pathé Masséna in Nice. The 2020 festival will return to Cinema Pathé Masséna.
