I was lucky enough to be invited to the International Short Film Festival last year and it was a wonderful experience. The festival is open to both live action and animated shorts with awards for separate categories.
You can read my article about the 2012 edition under January 2013 in my blog archive and then be sure to send your film.
The 13th edition of the International Short Film Festival will take place in October 2013 (9th to 13th) in Lille, France.
The international short films competition is composed of 3 categories : International, National and Young Audience.
These competitions are opened to all shorts (maximum 25 minutes and completed in 2012 / 2013).
