‘Short Nite’ Animated Film Festival Coming to ‘Fortnite’

Check out 12 animated short films though the video game’s Party Royale mode starting February 20th, 2 PM EST.

Fortnite, the battle-royale video game that teaches small children the meaning of rage (and how to build 50-foot wooden structures in .005 seconds), is hosting a…short film festival? The “Short Nite” festival will stream for a continuous 24-hour period starting February 20th at 2 PM EST. The series will feature 12 animated films from around the world totaling around 30 minutes of screen time.

All Fortnite enthusiasts can access the festival for free through the Party Royale mode, a space where players can come together to watch concerts and play mini-games. Props to the Epic Games team for creating a safe place to bring culture to children who may not have access to live events during quarantine.

Watch a trailer for the Short Nite festival now to get a sneak peek of the selected shorts:
