This year’s lineup is like a cinematic buffet, offering 27 Narrative, 21 Animation, and 9 Documentary short films. And for those who like their cinema with a side of maple syrup, there are 20 Canadian shorts to savor.
But wait, there’s more! The festival is not just about watching films; it’s about immersing yourself in the world of cinema. On November 18, industry veterans will spill the beans on everything from making and selling films to breaking into the broadcast/streaming arena. Then on November 19, prepare for a deep dive into PR and Social Media in the world of film.
And if you’re wondering how to fund your cinematic dreams, don’t miss the online workshop: Crowdfunding To Build Independence on November 14. It’s like a masterclass in making your film dreams come true. And the best part? It’s free!
The festival will also feature an esteemed jury who will select the top films in four categories: Narrative, Animation, Documentary, and Canadian Shorts. And because everyone loves a bit of audience participation, there’s also an Audience Choice Award.
So grab your popcorn and prepare for a cinematic journey like no other. The Shorts Not Pants Film Festival is not just a celebration of diversity and creativity; it’s a love letter to the art of short filmmaking. See you at the movies!
