We are a new film festival hosted by a initiative group of filmmakers and movie enthusiasts. Our goal is to promote foreign films from around the world and bring creators together.
In each CineShorts edition, filmmakers can submit their projects to have them judged by a multi award winning jury. Every submission can add numerous additional judging categories, but must submit to a main category to be considered for additional consideration.
Are you ready? This... is CineShorts.
The films selected for the CineShorts film competition will be considered for the following awards:
- Best Short Film
- Best Feature Film
- Best Documentary
- Best Animation
- Best Cinematography
- Best Director
- Best First-Time Director
- Best Editor
- Best Music Composer
We accept films of any genre that represent our name: CineShorts. What does that mean? Your film has to be CINEmatic masterpiece. We leave it up to you to decide that. Also, we accept any film that has been completed after January 1, 2020. Films that have debuted online are ineligible.
Subtitles: Please submit subtitles on all work except English narratives. Every film spoken in an language different than English must have English subtitles, since this is an international festival.
All films are first viewed by the festival programmers and if selected given to the jury which will decide which films will be awarded in each category.
