Short Film Competition finalists

Shorts screen both Friday and Saturday nights of the Festival. Narrative Description provided by Art Spark Texas; ASL Interpretation provided by Communication by Hand.

This year, we were thrilled to receive 131 films from 25 countries for our international Short Film Competition: 64 Documentary and 67 Non-documentary! Our volunteer screener team has reviewed each one carefully and selected the best of the best to send to our volunteer judges.

Friday night at the Fest, we'll screen Competition finalists and selected shorts, including honorable mentions and winners from non-documentary division. Filmmakers in attendance! Saturday night, we'll be back with documentary division winners. Both nights, join us at the Fest to cast your vote for Audience Favorite!
