39th Short Film Market

The Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival is the most important short film event in the world. Masterpieces of animation, comedies, films on contemporary reality, genre films, student projects from the best schools in the world, real and fake documentaries… The selections comprising the seventy programs in this year’s Festival critically bring together the worlds of filmmakers of all stripes. Between the competitions and retrospectives, there are 400 hundred films from fifty countries that offer a formidable dive into a refreshing pool of young cinematic talent.

The Festival began in 1979 as part of a student film club and immediately took off. In 2023, it welcomed over 3,900 professionals from all over the world and totalled over 160,000 admissions.
