Show Me Shorts is New Zealand’s leading international short film festival. We work to connect New Zealanders with the best short films from here and around the world; celebrate excellence in short film making and foster the New Zealand short film community.
Each year, from over 1,500 entries from around the world, our experienced team of short film lovers curates a selection of the 40 best short films and six best music videos. We serve them up at more than 20 cinemas nationwide, from Kaitaia to Stewart Island.
These stories offer us the chance to escape into new worlds, learn more about ourselves and connect with others. The programme covers a diverse range of themes and subjects, including horror, drama, animation, comedy and everything in between.
