The World's Shortest Short Film Award


Stockholm Film Festival is very proud to present the World's Shortest Short Film Award! 

Do you have a burning interest and great passion for storytelling with film, take part in the World's Shortest Short Film Competition with a film of a maximum of 30 seconds runtime. Anyone can compete by submitting their entry no later than November 5th by clicking here!

We open up for creativity through the art of telling a story in 30 seconds. What have you felt during a year and a half of the pandemic and how do you feel now? If you have something to say, say it with a film!

The Stockholm Film Festival jury judges the films on the same criteria as a longer film, because we think that quality film does not have to be long to reach greatness. The winning entry will be shown at the end of the festival in connection with the World's Shortest Short Film Award ceremony.

The winner of the World's Shortest Short Film Award 2021 receives:

  • One hour supervision by a recognized director.
  • Spend a day on a professional film set.
  • Membership and tickets to the Stockholm Film Festival 2022
