Golden Short Film Festival

International Short Film Festival

The Golden Short Film Festival rewards the best and outstanding short films from around the globe. We consider the art of filming an essential component of our lives and encourage works that use powerful narration in order to create a unique vision. The cinema as a tool of fiction relies on an easy, central assertion: to tell is to feel empathic. There is no story to tell without the "Other". Because the audience empathizes with the characters, within the vast universe of all the stories that can be invented, he/she can experience those patterns of emotions that otherwise would be lost.

The Golden Short Film Festival is a three-month contest repeated four times for one year, dedicated to finding those remarkable works that may otherwise be overlooked or snubbed. We accept short films of all genres. Our mission is to encourage and support filmmakers throughout the world in order to provide the recognition they deserve.

All the quarter winners are nominated, awarded, and honored on our website and will receive certificates along with exclusive laurel and dedicated promotion. Every submission can add also additional categories increasing the chances to become multi-award-winning. The overall winner will be awarded live during the ceremony at the stunning Castello Orsini - Colonna in Avezzano on May, 30/2021.
