The 12th Annual Atlanta Shortsfest is held August 20 - 21, 2021 in  Atlanta, Georgia.  Atlanta Shortsfest showcases a diverse mix of short films by ultra-talented filmmakers from across the globe.

Traditionally, short films often do not garner the attention they deserve on the festival circuit. Atlanta Shortsfest was established to spotlight and promote excellent short films, and provide an important platform to share and discuss your work with appreciative audiences and fellow filmmakers. 

The Atlanta Shortsfest showcases a variety of short films with a running time under 45 minutes. Judges program comedy, animation, documentary, experimental, horror & sci-fi, personal, erotic, fantasy, drama, thrillers, action & adventure,  and just about any other genre you can imagine.‚Äč
