ISFFC is an international short film festival organized by the 1895 Film Society in Guangzhou. The festival features top films from the world's leading filmmakers as well as introduces new, talent from around the world.

As always, we're proud to welcome both China and international submissions. In 2019 (the first edition of the international short film competition), we screened 50+ films carefully curated from over 1000 submissions including Oscar® Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Emmy® and Grammy® winning artists from around the world.

ISFFC is traditionally held on the last weekend of October, at several remarkable venues in Guangzhou city, with free admission to the whole program.

ISFFC is an IMDb Award-listing qualifying festival! All winners will receive IMDB winning accreditation and an official awards certificate.
