who are we?

Canberra Short Film Festival (CSFF) is an independent, locally run festival, run by Australian Short Film Festivals Incorporated, a not for profit organisation.


We are proud to be screening the best short films, from Australia and around the globe, across the Canberra region.

Now entering our 27th year, this competition-based festival, awards filmmakers across ten categories, celebrating their crafts. 

We look for films of any genre and style that feature; high production values, innovation, thought provoking themes, great use of the medium and beautiful storytelling;  up to 20 minutes in length and made within the previous 18-months.
