ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

The Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival has become the world’s premiere cinema event dedicated to short films. It is the second largest film festival in France after Cannes in terms of audience and professional attendance. It is at the heart of many all-year-round activities and missions conducted from La Jetée by the collective team of Sauve qui peut le court métrage. Its permanent staff of 17 all live in the Auvergne region, where a lively environment has developed around filmmaking.

The festival screens around 450 films in 14 venues for more than 160.000 spectators and attracts 3;500 industry professionals each year. The Short Film Market hosts 37 exhibiting countries and some 8.000 films at the Video Library.

COMPETITIONS & AWARDS

There are three competitions at the festival. A National Competition, which consists of French produced films, an International Competition (for films from all over the world) and a Lab Competition (for everything experimental).

Since a few years, the amount of awards have expanded enormously. Each competition consists of a Grand Prix, a Prix Spécial du Jury, a Prix du Public and a Prix Canal+, among 10+ more awards such as a Student Award, an Award for Best Cinematography, Best Animation, & more.
