So it’s time to send us your very best short films — 30 minutes or less, please. As always, we’re looking for innovative and original narrative, documentary, and animated shorts. Enter via FilmFreeway or Withoutabox.

Albany FilmFest is a true community celebration thanks to the support of the City of Albany, local businesses, and our dedicated team of volunteers and City staff. Watch films all day, and meet guest directors, judges, and emerging filmmakers from the Bay Area and across the United States in a casual, creative, and friendly atmosphere.

AFF welcomes new and experienced filmmakers of all ages. We watch every film that is submitted and finalists are judged by a panel of respected film industry professionals.

Proceeds go to support youth media education in Albany.
