FESTIVAL

Important information

We are extremely sorry to announce that in light of the international situation regarding the COVID-19 virus, we will have to postpone our festival event to a later date.

We will continue to update our Facebook page and website as we have more information.

 

Please know we are devoting all our resources to finding a better solution (one that minimises the risk of infection while, at the same time, rewarding all your hard work). We are here for any questions or comments you may have and we kindly ask for your patience.

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.
