Shorts Night Details

WIF’s annual Shorts Night showcases our members’ best short content of the previous two years. Women filmmakers and filmmakers of underrepresented genders are invited to submit short narrative or documentary projects, 20 minutes of length or shorter. Projects chosen to screen will be notified by 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. Only active WIF Los Angeles members may submit the form. You can join WIF here.
