We’ve announced the full lineup of programming for this year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival’s ShortFest! Our film talent includes Francesca Scorsese, Bella Thorne, Emma D’Arcy, Rory Culkin, Yvonne Strahovski, and Benedict Cumberbatch. ShortFest runs from June 18-24, 2024 at the Regal Palm Springs.

Out of over 6,300 submissions, the festival will screen 310 films from 63 countries, with 49 being world premieres. 153 of the chosen films were directed by women, including “Unsettled” by Bella Thorne and “Fish Out of Water” by Francesca Scorsese. Other selections include “ALOK” directed by Alex Hedison and executive produced by Jodie Foster, “Holiday House” starring AnnaSophia Robb, “The One Note Man” starring Ian McKellen, and more.

Lili Rodriguez, Artistic Director of the Palm Springs International Film Society said, “Year after year, short filmmaking continues to gain recognition, reaching broader audiences and offering filmmakers a striking canvas from which to experiment, innovate, and explore the stories which make them dream. Celebrating our 30th anniversary, we have both the unique gift of looking back toward the creativity which has sprouted at ShortFest across its significant tenure, as well as the still rich environment from which to see emerging creatives grow. We are honored to share these captivating works with our loyal Palm Springs audience, and cannot wait to welcome these artists from around the globe once again to the Coachella Valley.”

Juried award winners will be announced on June 23, 2024, including five Academy Award-qualifying awards and cash prizes totaling $25,000.
