Anatolian Short Film Festival is a online-monthly international short film festival. The mission of the festival is to offer all short film directors internationally the chance to showcase their films and give this experience to our independent directors. We also create a short film viewing platform thanks to our online screenings. As a result of the 'open' audience vote every month, a film and its director are deemed worthy of the audience award. Apart from this, a film is awarded with a special festival award as a result of the votes of our festival team and the jury. All filmmakers participating in our festival, are taken to Whatsapp Group of ASFF upon their request. In this way, they can communicate with the festival directors very quickly!

(All films that apply are also considered to be nominated for AUDIENCE AWARD and SPECIAL JURY AWARD.)
