Beloved by filmmakers and alumni, Salute Your Shorts curates a collection of the best short films from around the world in every genre, showcasing them to a community of artists seeking inspiration and conversation. Selected films will enjoy an audience of working entertainment industry professionals and compete for a cash prize.
We are seeking accessible, thought-provoking stories whether they are shot on the iPhone or the Alexa. We know it can be hard to compare an artfully drawn film about a social issue, against a delightful romantic comedy or even a progressive horror film. We believe that excellence in every genre should be rewarded and seek to program a slate of films that represents the diverse voices in our world today.
