Going into it's 10th year, the Beverly Hills Shorts Festival has become one of the premiere short format film festivals in the world. The festival is all about short films, filmmakers and promoting short film to the "industry" in a luxurious, professional and exciting environment.


With over 12,000 short films being made each year and an ever increasing appetite for creative content we feel there is a strong need to exhibit, display, promote and help distribute the worlds best. And what better environment to display the best than in Beverly Hills, home to some of the worlds most influential people.

Now in it's 10th year, the Beverly Hills Shorts Festival has become the Los Angeles Metro area's 2nd largest shorts festival. We are proud that every selection screened at the festival comes from actual submissions. NO FILMS are invited to the festival! And unlike the majority of the festivals who program through a "who you know" method, our programmers are completely impartial. Each film will be watched by anywhere from 2 - 5 programmers. If you want to give your film the best chance at screening at a festival... the best chance to go on and win an award (we give out between 15-20 awards), then SUBMIT to the Beverly Hills Shorts Festival.
