Melbourne Short Film Festival

Founded in 2018, Melbourne Short Film Festival aims to bring independent short films from around the globe to Australia. Supporting independent filmmakers and artists as well as local movie theatres and cultural venues has always been our Festival’s core philosophy.

Loyal to our vision, our film screening programs consist of various film genres, styles, aesthetics and themes. Year by year our Festival expands further attracting more and more cinephiles, industry professionals and filmmakers.

Melbourne Short Film Festival is organised by HFP, a pioneer organisation that runs Film Festivals and other events showcasing and championing ideas of diversity. Through our global series of film Festivals that spread over 13 countries, we open the path to voices with a compelling story to share. Our main mission is to honour independent cinema and establish a network of artists eager to join forces and spread their work across all nations. HF runs 25 film Festivals worldwide.
