The 5th edition of the Ransäter Filmfestival is now open for submission. The festival will be held from 4th-7th March 2024. The Ransäter Filmfestival vision has not changed and that is to bring quality shorts from all over the world to the city of Ransäter. In addition, we believe that it is important that everyone has the possibility to not just make films but also to enjoy and experience films which otherwise would not have been seen. Films close to the heart and resonates well with you.

The first day will be a workshop held by Ahmed El Shady (won best short 2021) the workshop will be dedicated to aspiring young directors/actors. The second day we will screen the selected shorts that are in competition. The third day we will have a retrospective with a director who made the difficult transition between short and feature. The price ceremony will also be held on the fourth day and we end the festival with a live music act

A jury of three will decide the winners in each category and the audience will decide one winner for the Audience Award. If you win you need to be present to receive the price money. At least one of the film crew for each selected film will be invited to this year's festival.
