Featuring five Screening Days to view the finalist films and an Awards Night.
This year, for the very first time, FOLCS will be virtually hosting its annual International Short Film Competition. In the spirit of continuing to provide a public service for our audiences sheltered at home, we will be making our independent short films and the 8th Annual Awards Night available to you at times when gathering together in person is not possible.
This special program is produced in partnership with the New York Film Academy.
HOW IT WORKS
Registering for this event will allow you to screen the finalists’ films over a period of five days (Screening Days), and the opportunity to tune in to our Awards Night, where we will hold a virtual discussion with our finalist filmmakers and present the awards. The presentation will include awards for Best Short, 2nd and 3rd places, Audience Favorite Award, and Best Screenplay.

2. On April 5, 2021, you will receive an email with instructions on how to unlock and watch the films online; OR you can simply come back here and click on the “WATCH THE FILMS” button;
