Based in Huntsville, Alabama, aka Rocket City, RCSFF showcases a variety of SHORT films usually less than 15 mins in length. Brevity in storytelling is a skill that we celebrate, and we look forward to screening your shorts in this year's lineup!

Located in the historic Lowe Mill theater, the venue provides a unique experience to enjoy films on a large screen. Updated in 2022 with new equipment, we're excited to continue the long-standing tradition of showcasing filmmakers.

Awards will be handed out for the top three films as well as an audience choice award, all presented at the end of the event.
