The Shortcut 100 International Film Festival is an annual showcase dedicated to promoting the best in independent short film from emerging filmmakers.
For the same amount of time as an average feature film (around 100 minutes) we offer our audience access to the up-and-coming voices and artistic visions of independent cinema from around the world.
Based in Chicago and run by filmmakers from Nebula Creatives L3C, every year features an opening reception, awards chosen by our audience and an after party with filmmakers in attendance – all in a ‘short-and-sweet’ 3-hour program.
For the 9th year of running, we will be celebrating the in-person festival at the Chicago Cultural Center, Claudia Cassidy Auditorium and the virtual viewing on Pixquid.com.
