Atlanta Micro Short Film Festival was created to showcase talented filmmakers who have created unforgettable ultra short films. Join us December 2, 2023 for a non-stop day packed with films from the world's best micro short filmmakers.

An estimated 150 micro short films will be spotlighted: narrative, documentary, music videos, animation, experimental, and just about any genre of short film. There is only one rule - keep it short!

Ultra short films are the perfect way to showcase a filmmakers talent, and for an audience with a short attention span, this is the perfect event! Each of our film selections have a running time of under 5 minutes (not including credits). Brevity is the soul of wit!

Awards are given for Best of in various categories:
Best Micro Short
Best Drama
Best Horror
Best Comedy
Best Animation
Best Music Video
Best Experimental
Best Narrative
Best Documentary
and more

All films must have a running time of 5 minutes or less, not including the credits. If your project is a little over 5 minutes, don't worry! Our maxium running time is 7 min. to allow for credits.

If accepted, and we feel your credits are too long for your project, we may ask to shorten the length of the credits. While not required, our advice to all short form filmmakers is to keep your credits to 30 seconds or less.

Entries must be submitted via FilmFreeway with a secure online screener.

Films which have been published online (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) are considered, as well as any films which have premiered at other festivals.

We will notify you via FilmFreeway if accepted. Please respond as quickly as possible. Filmmakers should have all assets sent to us two weeks prior to festival.
