HARD-TO-GET INFO • An event by this name may exist, but we have not been able to find even basic information about it. The listing remains available for your reference.

Short Film Competition
We show the very best short films from around the world that capture an inspirational spirit. Film has a unique power to inspire, lift spirits and remind us of the joy that is all around us.

All our films are family friendly, under 20 minutes and speak to everyone no matter who you are or what you believe in.

Our programme is bursting films worth sharing, embodying some of the following values:

MISSION & OBJECTIVE
We believe that film has the power to inspire everyone, no matter who you are, where you live or what you believe. Our filmmakers and audiences might lead entirely different lives but through the medium of film they are able to connect via entertainment highlighting their shared values.

We are not linked to any one particular religious faith or set of beliefs. We believe that most religions share many similar values; such as an appreciation of life, belief in power of inspiration, the significance of community and the importance of living by a moral and ethical code. These types of concepts should be universal and cross over all barriers of location, gender, age, race and religious association.

Audiences can be part of a shared experience, which brings joy and recharges their soul. Filmmakers making the films can be championed and have their work screened globally.

This is a film festival with a difference. We want to share the inspiration within our films further than to just one set of screenings and so anyone can host their own ‘Inspiring Shorts Film Festival’. We team up churches, faith organisations, community groups and other organisations to find new audiences all over the world.

Each host organisation is sent the films from our selected shortlist enabling them to present their own mini film festival (e.g. “Inspiring Shorts: An ‘x’ Church Film Festival”). The audience are asked to vote for their favourite films at each screening.

THIS FESTIVAL WILL NOW BE A PRT OF THE SUPER SHORTS INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. PLEASE SEE THE WEBSITE FOR UPDATES:
