Short Short Story Film Festival

The Short Short Story Film Festival is a competitive international festival of films that tell a story in under six minutes.

The festival celebrates brevity in filmmaking, with films from across the globe, both live-action and animated.

The festival has typically included both jury and audience awards, with winners receiving custom art objects created by past festival winners.

2021 All Stars Edition

As Covid has had an impact on cinemas and events around the world, we did not produce a festival in 2020. We are doing something a little different for 2021.

We decided to have winners from the past several years participate in an All Stars Edition of the festival, judged by recent participants on our Spoiler Alert Radio film interview show, like previous festivals.

However, there will not be an audience component for this year. This will be a virtual experience and seen exclusively by Jury members.

Participating Films

Films from 2014 to 2019 are participating in this year's special edition.
