10 Year Anniversary Love Your Shorts Film Festival

The Love Your Shorts Film Festival celebrates short films in Sanford, Florida (located just twenty minutes north of Orlando).
We screen only short films under 30 minutes in length. Films are divided into different blocks for screening and the audience votes for their favorites. The winning films from each block advance to a final block for a panel of judges to pick the overall festival winner.
At the end of each block a brief Q&A session is conducted between the filmmakers and audience members.
