2023 Annual Elgin Short Film Festival
Saturday, September 23, 2023
Mark your calendars! This event grows in popularity every year. The short films are always highly impressive, and the atmosphere is perfect! *The Red Carpet. The Pre-Show. The glitz and glam of the evening is always so exciting, and a night to remember!
Come & enjoy an evening of scintillating cinematic history. See the best of the best from various genres on the big screen. The top pre-screened films up to 20 minutes in length will be presented at the festival; winners will be selected by a panel of judges and you! In person audience members will be casting their votes for their favorite film at intermission. Following intermission, awards and prizes will be presented!
So get your friends and family together and come down for this unique event! This year, we will also be offering a streaming option to watch from afar if you can't make it to the festival. You can get your Virtual Viewing Experience tickets for $25 (voting is only for the in person audience though).
