Want a sneak peek of the short films that are being submitted to the Oscars? Then watch our Palm Springs International ShortFest winners!
At Closing Night on Sunday, June 26, 2022, the Palm Springs International Film Society honored audience favorites and jury award-winning films, including five Academy Award-qualifying awards.
Much like its feature-length cousin, winter’s Palm Springs International Film Festival, ShortFest is a solid predictor of the next Oscars. Variety says that “ShortFest has always cast a long shadow in the world of short filmmaking, with last year’s hybrid festival featuring eight of the year’s eventual Oscar nominees, and two winners.”
Designated by AMPAS, BAFTA, BIFA and Goya Awards as an award-qualifying festival, and accredited by the International Short Film Conference, the Palm Springs International ShortFest & Short Film Market is one of the most acclaimed short film showcases in the world.
Shortfest ran at the Palm Springs Cultural Center from June 21st to 27th. Now, we will screen a selection of award winners and audience favorites in our Virtual Best of Fest! This virtual pass will grant the purchaser full access to 25+ short film favorites from the 2022 addition. Click here to access from the comfort of your own home and at your leisure.
