Close:Up San Francisco Short Film Festival

Close:Up San Francisco Short Film Festival is an online film festival dedicated to empowering short-form independent filmmaking.

Using the power of online platforms to bring a real cinematic experience to the comfort of cinephiles’ homes, Close:Up San Francisco Short Film Festival features shorts of upcoming filmmakers. Our goal is to offer a platform that will showcase the genre of short films and empower emerging and established filmmakers.

Independent cinema has always been giving voice to people of all backgrounds and has allowed artistic freedom. Our vision is to do our bit and contribute to this through our social.

Our screening program features different film genres including documentary, fiction, animated, music videos and experimental.
