Sydney Indie Short


Sydney Indie Short Festival is an online seasonal film festival. The festival is dedicated to international short films of all genres, aiming to find new voices and perspectives to celebrate the power of a good story. The festival is open to all genres from all countries. The submitted projects are judged through private screenings by a random team of invited experts from academia and film industry from the region. From the pool of official selection, which has a very competitive acceptance rate, SIFF chose the nominees and award winners of the edition.

Our Mission

Our main goal is to showcase their brilliant projects in the beautiful city of Sydney for a diverse audience of cinephiles. It is a world-class event committed to present the best of this beautiful art called ‘Cinema’ and dedicated to all generations of filmmakers. Through private screenings, a team of professional screeners will evaluate all the submitted short films. All the highest scored films will be selected for the official competition and will be reviewed by at least three judges who will decide the best of each season.
