WELCOME! Welcome Filmmakers! The 11th annual HollyShorts Film Festival will be our biggest yet! Enjoy more than 400 films from over 20 countries and countless films of all genres, to go with an amazing film conference filled with panelists from studios to digital buyers. This year’s festival will be, we hope, an inspiring and exciting and fun filled 10 days for our filmmakers and attendees. The films selected in 2015 are competing for $15,000 cash grand prize courtesy of Zype!, Company 3 and Method studios will be awarding up to $60,000 in post services prizes as well! Adding to that, we have added the first annual online HollyShorts festival through VHX, further empowering our filmmakers to be seen throughout the window of the festival to a global audience. Last but not least, our team is excited to announce the launch of All Short TV, a full service channel for short films and short content available on Roku and Amazon Fire! Further proof that HollyShorts is the only destination in Los Angeles for short filmmakers. Any other festival that attempts to duplicate just fails. Enjoy the films, panels, and parties! Team HSFF Daniel, Theo, and Nicole
