Very Short Film Festival Australia

Welcome to the Very Short Film Festival!  

At VSFF, we celebrate the power of storytelling and the creativity of filmmakers, both emerging and established, across Australia. By encouraging submissions from all genres and mandating the integration of our 2024 signature element, ‘spark’, we aim to ignite your creative passions and challenge the boundaries of conventional storytelling.

While submissions for the official competition are now closed, don’t miss the premiere screening event on Friday 31 May at the State Cinema in Hobart, Tasmania where the finalists films are launched to the world for the first time.

Join us to experience the best short films from around Australia. Expect a special night filled with films, awards, a lively afterparty and more… Tickets are limited, so snag your seats now.
