ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

 

Oakland Short Film Festival is an event founded by filmmakers for filmmakers. 

We aim to create a festival, where independent short films of all genres and countries of origin get the recognition they deserve, where filmmakers can come together and celebrate each other's work, at a fully sold-out cinema, filled with movie fanatics.
