CSFF 2023 OFFICIAL TRAILER | edit by Adam Lynch


from the director's desk

Canberra Short Film Festival is back and open for submissions in 2024.

Following on from our successful, record breaking event in 2023 we are once again calling for entry to all filmmakers.  We are looking for films across all 12 categories;

  • International

  • National

  • Canberra

  • Documentary

  • Animation

  • Music Video

  • First Nations

  • Experimental

  • 2 Minute Film

  • Schools/Under 18

  • Spiritus Film Prize

  • Smith's Short Shorts

The CSFF team and our partners are committed to supporting creativity, innovation, technical excellence and independent filmmaking, all of which short film is so good at delivering.

We believe that film festivals can encompass much more than simply screening films. And this year, we will again host additional events such as Q&A’s, panel discussions, industry networking events and of course, a few parties to mark extra special occasions in our calendar.

We look forward to seeing your film.

- John and the CSFF Team
