MISSION & OBJECTIVE

We are here to celebrate the short film, all different types. We are a three day fest with student awards, a fun time at a bar and an exciting awards show to close out the fest. Here is your chance to get your short films noticed and possibly win for best comedy, best horror, best drama as well as best actor and actress and many more!

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

We have been doing film series events at the Brightside Tavern and decided to turn it into a film festival. Filmmakers Chris J. Cullen and Chris Capaci have come together to create this 4th event, which now runs twice a year. We will be celebrating the short film in many different categories on two screens with a fun award show at the end of the night. We wanted to make a small shorts fest in Jersey City at a great venue where people can meet up, screen their films and celebrate their work as well as making it affordable. We are in Jersey City and would love to have a number of NJ and NY filmmakers to join us for this special day but also we get films from all over the country and all over the world. We made the fees affordable for everyone and we have a great venue for the short films.
