"The Super Bowl of Houston Short Film...." - Critics
Get ready for year 2 of Houston's Short Short Short Film Festival (HS3FF)!
HS3FF'24 will take place October 2024 (Tentative) and is open to all filmmakers across North America (e.g., United States & Canada).
We are also accepting international submissions as a special screening to recognize international filmmakers in South America and beyond.
HS3FF provides a unique opportunity for filmmakers to showcase their work to a wider audience and network with other industry professionals and creatives.
Selected short movies will be screened at the festival, and the best of the best will be awarded prizes. The short movies selected for screening must have an engaging storyline, strong characters, and demonstrate technical proficiency.
We aim to celebrate the art of short filmmaking and provide a platform for talented filmmakers to share their work with a wider audience.
The screening of the short movies will be accompanied by short Q&A sessions with the filmmakers, panel discussions, photo-ops, networking, workshops, and an awesome after party.
Food & beverages will also be provided.
It's going to be an incredible experience.
