We invite you to submit your short film (5-10 minutes) and be part of an amazing new festival based in the heart of Hollywood. The Short+Sweet Hollywood Film Festival is open to all comers but most welcome are local film makers.
Let’s face it - attention spans are not getting any longer and this celebration of cinema, creativity and storytelling is a professional pathway for talented film makers, writers, actors, cinematographers and directors.
If your film is chosen to be part of the festival you’ll join a program that features local and international films that will be presented at the Marilyn Theatre on Santa Monica Blvd in Otober 2018. You’ll have the chance to win Awards and Prizes. Of course we'll make sure that the 'right' people are invited along and your work is seen to it's best advantage.
The Best Film (chosen by respected industry judges) and the People’s Choice Winner (chosen by the audience) will be selected to take part in the International Short+Sweet Film Festival Gala Final on October 20th at the beautiful and historic Marilyn Monroe Theatre on Santa Monica Blvd. That’s where the winning films from S+S Film Festivals in Sydney, Melbourne, Manila, Dubai and Chennai will compete to take out the International Best Film Awards.
The festival is a proud member of the Short+Sweet family - the biggest 10 minute performing arts festival in the world - with events in 30+ cities across 10 countries. It’s been around for 20 years with the first S+S Theatre Festival in Sydney Australia in 2002 and to date have presented over 6,500 original new works in Theatre, Music and Dance. It might have started on the other side of the world in far off Australia but the global home of the S+S Film is now right here in Hollywood where it belongs.
