Shorts Night

Screening the best short films to highlight WIF members' work.

WIF’s annual Shorts Night showcases our members’ best short content of the previous year. Filmmakers are invited to submit short narrative or documentary projects that are 20 minutes in length or shorter. Projects chosen to screen will be notified in early January. The virtual event will feature the films followed by a Q&A with the creators, and will be open to the public.

Submissions must be directed and/or written by an active WIF Los Angeles member in good standing. You can join WIF here: https://womeninfilm.org/become-a-member.

  • Finished short films, 20 minutes or under
  • Completed between 2018 and 2020

All videos will be compiled into a single Quicktime file for projection the night of the event. We will be collecting high-res video files from selected filmmakers once selections have been made.
