The Copehagen Short Film Festival exclusively focuses on screening short films. We screen short film from upcoming as well as more experienced filmmakers. CSFF especially focuses on showcasing short films that explore the art form, and are not just a short version of a feature length film.

All film genres can be submitted (artistic, music video, documentary and so on), but the film can not have a running time longer then 30 minuts, and must be produced in 2017 or 2018. If your film does not live up to these rules, the film will be disqualified.

When applying you film to the Copenhagen Short Film Festival, you agree to the following conditions:
- That the submitter is the holder of all rights for the film, and that no rights for all or parts of the film are in dispute.
- CSFF decide when and where your film will be screened.
- CSFF can use material from the film (clips from the film, trailer and pictures) for promotional purposes (such as festival trailer, poster and program).
- If sending in a physical copy of the film, CSFF is not responsable for possible damages to the film and will not pay to return the film (unless another agreement has been made with the festival).
