Short-filmz.com is a website to support independent filmmakers started in 2012. We publish short films from all over the world by classifying them under different genre and languages. We regularly host a contest and announce winners on our website.

We are charging a minimum amount for this contest in order to keep running our website to support independent filmmakers.

Awards & Prizes

Top three to ten winners of the contest will be selected by our team and will be posted on our website on our hall of fame page along with a short review about the film. We will also post all the films considered for the contest in our Official Selections page.

Rules & Terms

1. We require a vimeo or YouTube or Filmfreeway digital screening link. We don't accept DVDs
2. We don't have any prior screening or première requirements
3. Please include English subtitles for non-English films. We won't consider other language films without English subtitles
4. We consider only non-documentary films at this time
5. Duration of the film should be less than or equal to 25 minutes
6. Once we notify the official selections and winners, they can let us know if we can post the film for public viewing in our website. If not, we will just have a poster, synopsis, review, and trailer. If the filmmaker is interested, we will also post their email address so potential producers can contact them.

    I was notified about film status on time, something I did not experience with many festivals. Some I did not hear from at all! But I would submit here again!
