From a simple start at the Sydney Comedy Store in 2004 screening shorts on DVD, Show-Fest has grown to be a fully-featured festival that can screen 35mm prints in a real cinema environment. In 2010 we were one of the first short film festivals in the world to exclusively use 35mm film and DCI-DCP digital for cinema projection.
We are a selective festival that uses an independent judging panel to choose the finalist films. The judges will be drawn from Sydney’s film and television industry.
We screen at a cinema that is widely respected for its suitability for festivals. The Ritz Cinema is a multi-screen independent cinema in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs, surrounded by the café and restaurant precinct known as The Spot.
Our “Show & Tell” format means that at least one cast or crew member is strongly encouraged to attend the screening. They can then talk on-stage about their experience making and promoting their film, and answer questions from the audience.
Finalist filmmakers who are unable to attend the festival are required to submit a short video or audio clip along with the exhibition copy. In this clip the filmmaker must answer the same questions that will be asked of filmmakers by the host at Show-Fest. This clip need not be of a professional standard: filmmakers have submitted videos shot using a webcam.
We believe this unique combination of attributes makes Show-Fest International a worthy platform for both you and your short film.
