Short Film
This festival will accept ONLY comedy and/or animated shorts.

The We Like 'Em Short Film Festival is aimed at celebrating the art of the short film, and to provide a platform for independent filmmakers to showcase their talent. This festival seeks original and entertaining animated and comedy shorts from around the world.

The We Like Em Short Film Festival allows aspiring and professional filmmakers from around the world the chance to show their films in beautiful Baker City, a small community known for embracing the arts.

The WLES was started in 2009 as a very small local festival featuring local filmmakers. In 2012 we decided to seek entries online, which opened us up to becoming an international film festival. For the 2014 festival, it was decided to pare our festival down a bit toward seeking only the films our staff and audiences find to consistently be the most entertaining, creative and engaging: animated and comedy shorts.

The WLES film festival is a weekend festival that offers several awards, including a $250 cash award for Best Picture and a $150 award for Best Student Film.
