Not every film in a film festival, large, small, mainstream, even fringe, is truly independent – i.e. fully self-funded. Electric Shorts, is the only short film festival in the world that showcases films that have been fully self-funded by the filmmaker.
The spirit of filmmakers doing it for themselves is exactly what drives this event. This years program will display different styles and cover a range of themes, created by 12 filmmakers from diverse backgrounds. But lest anyone think independent and diverse means amateurish and uninteresting, they can think again. These films will compel, excite, and even shock, everything films can do, but often don’t.
Come and celebrate our tenth birthday and support true independent film making.
