OUR MISSION

Illume Short Film Festival is in search of rarefied content created from little to no budget. From Short Films to Episodics, Trailers to Music Videos and now Short Scripts, we welcome projects from all over the world. Entering year two, the festival will remain strictly online due to the uncertainty of 2021 conditions. Illume Short Film Festival will level the playing field by selecting projects based on the maximization of a limited budget plus all of the elements that make for a great project. 

WHY ILLUME?:

Understanding what it truly means to create with a low budget, Illume is a festival powered by Indie Filmmakers for Indie Filmmakers. We provide a fighting chance.


WHAT’S TO COME:

In year three ISFF will transition from online to a live event. The People's Choice Award will continue as an online competition. From there, every year going forward, the festival will continue with this structure.
