ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
TheWrap is thrilled to announce the 8th annual ShortList Film Festival, an online short film festival, featuring cash prizes and industry recognition. The Festival will once again bring the very best short films from around the world to your computer or mobile device.
Twelve of the best award-winning short films that have premiered at a major festival in the past year will be selected, making this the most highly-competitive film festival of its kind. The 2015 ShortList Audience and Jury prize winner went on to win the Academy-Award for Best Animated Short Film. The 2016 Jury prize winner went on to win the Cesar award for Best Short Film.
All ShortList films will be available for viewing from August 7-21 on ShortListFilmFestival.com and TheWrap.com. They will also be highlighted daily in TheWrap’s First Take Newsletter, served daily to tens of thousands of subscribers.
Winners will be announced at a live party in Los Angeles, with filmmakers, jury members and representatives from the entertainment industry in attendance. More details to be announced about the live party.
