Rock the Shorts Film Festival – click here for the festival website!
About the festival:
The founders of Rock the Shorts are both filmmakers and huge fans of short films. Shorts can pack an emotional punch and take us on a wonderful ride in 40 minutes or less. We feel the creators of such entertainment deserve recognition and encouragement.
When your film is an “Official Selection” at a well-organized film festival it is the most gratifying experience. This is what we want to bring to you. Our goal is to further inspire you to keep creating…keep writing…keep directing…keep producing…keep acting…keep telling stories…keep making short films!
