International Short and Sweet Film Festival Come to the Gear Events Center

Short and Sweet Film Festival

In a regional first, the Geary Events Center will host the Short and Sweet Film Festival, a showcase of 28 short films from 24 different countries. This year’s festival marks the 3rd annual Short and Sweet Film festival.

Winners will be chosen by a jury of film industry professionals, as well as an audience choice award to be decided during the event. The festival will span two nights, kicking off January 17th at 5:00 p.m., and then January 18th at the same time. There will be no admission fee for this event, and seating will be first come, first served. 

"We would like to invite anyone interested in film to attend the festival," said Warren Workman, the festival’s organizer. "We have several filmmakers attending the festival, so this is a golden opportunity to get an inside look into the filmmaking process."

With 28 short films to choose from, there’s a little something for everyone: thrillers, comedies, war, action, drama, animation, documentaries, and more. The free event is open to all.
