Archived April 29, 2021 Film Submissions Opening The Edmonton Short Film Festival (ESFF) is dedicated to the elevation of independent short film. The ESFF gala event showcases Alberta filmmakers and our long shorts program screens both Alberta and beyond short films considered outside of the normal festival market. We feature diverse projects (newly created or dusted off favourites) including trailers, music videos, web series, commercials, and any genre short film. The Alberta Gala is for films to a maximum of 15 minutes. The Long Shorts is for films to a maximum of 60 minutes, any creation date, from anywhere in the world. Alberta Filmmakers The Edmonton Short Film Festival partners with other cultural events to showcase Alberta short films. For only $8 CND, you will be able to have your film entered for consideration at one or more of these family events. All of these events will pay screening fees for films that are selected. To be considered for the gala, Alberta filmmakers still need to submit their films under the appropriate genre category in addition to choosing this add-on bonus. New Category Films that address social concerns and injustices may be submitted to the Social Justice category. Alberta films under 15 minutes submitted to this category will be considered for screening at the Red Carpet Gala and are eligible for this new award. Filmmakers will be invited to attend the filmmaker skills workshop at no cost. Watch for a special email with information about this opportunity!
