Come join the hottest shorts film fest in the SouthWest. Taos Shortz Film Festival is rapidly becoming an internationally known film festival.  We are dedicated to featuring quality, juried short films from around the globe and we invite you to bring your adventure of creativity to our film fest.  Take the opportunity to strut your stuff amidst the mountains  and mesas of Taos, NM. 

Do you have a tale to tell?

A secret to reveal?  A truth that screams to be heard?

We are a forum that unites short films and filmmakers with the community, with the belief that films have the ability to change peoples lives.

The Taos Shortz Film Fest continues to bring world class cinema to our community and beyond and to provide filmmakers with a venue to showcase their work, participate in workshops, panels, and network with fellow filmmakers, media companies, producers and distributors.        

The Taos Shortz Film fest will be held April 7- 10, 2016 at the Taos Center for the Arts.

We will screen global short films, focus on New Mexico filmmakers and a local Taos filmmaker night on Thursday, March 7th.  Free panel discussions and networking possibilities are being planned plus a few more creative events to make our 2013 festival better than ever!
