MISSION & OBJECTIVE
The Short. Sweet. Film Fest strives to showcase up and coming filmmakers at the local, national and international levels who strive to advance the art of film.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
In today’s film climate it is hard to showcase short films. Many festivals only care about features and it seems like this art is dwindling to silly videos about kittens on the internet. Even though we love kittens (who doesn’t?) here at the Short. Sweet. Film Festival, we love short films (heck, short is even in our title).

With four festivals under our belt, our goal for our fifth annual film festival is to showcase films under 25 minutes to the growing art scene in the greater Cleveland area and highlight the works of student filmmakers across the country. We are looking for the best short films locally, nationally, and internationally. So send them our way!

In addition, we are looking for local music talent. For the past two festivals we had hosted a mini-music festival in hopes of bringing more local artists together.

New this year, we will be also highlighting local beer. Beer reps and brewmasters will be on site to talk about their new brews and will be providing samples.

Our festival will take place in the Alex Theater at the Metropolitan at the 9 hotel in the heart of downtown Cleveland. Filmmakers and patrons can stay at the hotel at a discounted rate and enjoy food and beverages throughout the festival.
