Thank you for making this year's Festival a hit.

Please join us for the 2022 Festival.
Date TBD.

The 2021 Elgin Short Film Festival was a success thanks to you and our filmmakers.

Congratulations to the 2021 Film Festival Winners:

  • 1st Place - Clarence of Tomorrow
    Shawn Spear Director
  • 2nd Place - The Ephemeral Orphanage
    Lisa Barcy Director
  • 3rd Place - The Peach Scarf
    Del Sego Director

This was our first virtual and in-theatre experience, which means some attendees watched the show here at The Hemmens while others were able to watch the Festival from their own home! We have had many positive reviews and will offer the virtual viewing option in 2022 as well. 

Chamber Music on the Fox performed live as they accompanied the screening of the 1910 film "Wilful Peggy" starring Mary Pickford and entertainers were on hand for the Red Carpet Ceremony.
