InShortFF is an international, independent & inclusive short film festival.

Our festival is here to promote international collaboration. We believe that cinema is the best medium that is capable to build bridges between different countries, connect different cultures and unite people.

Go beyond & make your short film within an international team! Best projects with at least 1 international crew/cast member will be screened in at least 3 different countries! We want to help emerging filmmakers reach a wide & international audience, encourage talents to push the boundaries & present a very diverse programme.

    It was fantastic to be selected in the Top 10 shorts of InShort 2016. I saw some excellent films and the atmosphere at the festival was brilliant.
