Indie Shorts Mag Short Film Festival 2023

Welcome to the 3rd Indie Shorts Mag Short Film Festival! We are excited to be accepting submissions for our upcoming festival and are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to discover new and talented filmmakers from around the world. Our festival is dedicated to showcasing the best in independent short films. We are committed to providing a platform for emerging artists to share their work with a broad audience. If you are a filmmaker with a passion for storytelling and are looking for an opportunity to showcase your work, we encourage you to submit your film to our festival. We can’t wait to see what you offer and look forward to celebrating the art of short film with you.

History of our Festival:
Since our inception in 2015, we have been on a surprising ride of conceptualizing, collaborating, and working with excellent, seasoned, and budding filmmakers, professionals, and industry experts, exploring the nitty gritty of cinema. Navigating the minor glitches, we have made it this far only due to the overwhelming support from the film fraternity. The pandemic proved to be an eye-opener when we realized the full extent to which we have been indebted to the goodwill and help of every filmmaker and reader.
Keeping this in mind and that ISM was approaching its 6th anniversary, it was the perfect time to commemorate our journey and patrons, celebrating all things cinema. Hence in 2021, we launched Indie Shorts Mag Short Film Festival.
ISMSFF 2021 & 2022 saw the screening of the best fiction shorts, handpicked documentaries, and videos for a 2-hour event on 13th July 2021 & 2022, where the audience and panelists got to choose their favorites.

We are excited to present the 3rd Indie Shorts Mag Short Film Festival.

Reserve your spots and mark your calendars to be part of our growing community as Indie Shorts Mag gears up to bring you an invaluable (and virtual) experience that cannot be missed! Keep an eye out on this space for more information.

Thank you for considering Indie Shorts Mag Short Film Festival as a platform for your work.
