Show Me Shorts Film Festival is pleased to announce our 2020 programme- we look forward to bringing you fantastic films from Aotearoa and abroad starting from October 2! With 30 locations spanning from Russell to Steward Island, you are bound to find Show Me Shorts screenings on your local cinema’s big screen. But if 2020 has taught you to appreciate screening from the comfort of your own home, we are also excited to offer 3 online sessions this year. Many of our filmmakers have also included special messages about their films so keep a look out for them when browsing the screening pages.

Also be sure to check out our events- we kick off the festival in style with the Auckland Opening Night at the ASB Waterfront Theatre in Auckland and the Wellington Opening Night at Light House Cuba in Wellington on 8 October. At our Awards Night you have a chance to view and celebrate all of this year’s prize winning films in one place at Rialto Newmarket in Auckland on 4 October. Our Short Film Talks in Auckland and Wellington are another fantastic way to learn more about the craft from some of NZ’s top short film makers. You can also find more context on this year’s festival in our Director’s Welcome. Enjoy!
