The International Shorts Film Festival (ISFF) is advancing short movies alongside the producers who make them. We are devoted to the festival of short movies. After the debut celebration screenings 2020 the idea of the festival is to offer extra screenings of winning movies in urban areas. Passing judgment on happens by a board of judges, with victors reported on the official website.

Films are chosen and decided on two measures; the nature of the work as well as the aspiration. A board of three appointed authorities cautiously audits each film. We are full inclusive, do not censor work and have no other restrictions on your submission. We urge all movie producers to present their movies, paying little heed to nationality, religion or perspective. All types are very gladly welcome!

For the advancing short movies and producers, we celebrate accomplishment through various honors including Best Short Film, Best Performance, Best Director, Best Writing, Best Cinematography and Best Documentary Short Subject. We likewise commend various categorical awards. There is no monetary awards for victors, but films are totally chose and winning movies are advanced by the celebration, get official laurels, certificates and also trophies for finalists and award winners of the festival.

Submitted films are judged by a panel of filmmakers and selected entries are granted ‘Official Selection’ status. Chosen films are then decided at the festival with finalists and victors are screened in front of live festival crowds. The idea of the festival is to grow. As well as accepting entries from the entirety of the world, we intend to offer screenings of winning movies in various urban areas making this a really ‘global film celebration’.
