Scottish International Short Film Festival 2023
Earlybird deadline August 1st 2022, Final deadline February 13th 2023
Dates & location of event context: April 2023, Glasgow, Scotland.

SIFF is a new, international short film festival based in Scotland. SIFF will screen outstanding short film, animation, docs, experimental and video art.

An international jury will select the 7 winning categories including, SIFF Best International Short Film or Video 2023, which will receive £500.

We have created SIFF to showcase exceptional, international short film, whilst also addressing the imbalance of under-represented groups of makers and stories within film festivals. We understand that some short film and video blur the lines of typical film festival categories, so we also enthusiastically encourage non-traditional and experimental formats.

The stories of and by women, girls and non-binary people are underrepresented in film festivals, so we want to encourage submissions from anyone self-identifying as a woman, non-binary and/or anyone telling stories about women, girls and non-binary people.

For our first year, we are screening the festival in Scotland’s largest city and creative hub, Glasgow.

SIFF supports a culture of equality, diversity and non-discrimination, and is run as a non-profit organisation.

entry fee – yes Early bird fee is £8/10.
