HOLLYWOOD SHORTS is a short film festival held on the 3rd Sunday of each month in Los Angeles, and we accept film submissions on a quarterly rolling basis. Our festival launched in October 1998 and each year we have screened about 300 shorts and 'toons throughout the year. Our regular screenings feature emerging filmmakers and their creative teams to the Los Angeles film and television production community. Our 13th screening season runs from October 2010 - September 2011.
HOLLYWOOD SHORTS Monthly Screenings celebrate the outstanding achievements in short filmmaking and animation from both U.S. and international directors and their creative teams. Over 300 short and animated films are programmed year round. HOLLYWOOD SHORTS launched in October 1998 at a music venue on the westside called THE JOINT. The overflowing crowd packed the house, and filled the sidewalk outside watching films by David Fickas & Mark Kelly, Frank Tota, and animation by Joe Pearson. The next month, Variety Magazine wrote a small piece about the next screening, and we were officially a member of the film festival community. Since that night, HOLLYWOOD SHORTS quickly became one of the most popular short film series in Los Angeles.
