Show Me Shorts is Aotearoa New Zealand’s leading international short film festival. Our mission is to connect New Zealand audiences with short films and share New Zealand short films with the world. We celebrate the short film art form and champion short film makers!

Each year our programmers curate a selection of the best short films from Aotearoa and around the world, plus some of the top local music videos. We prioritise cinematic narrative-style films with strong audience appeal, as well as films that are making their premiere in our festival.

Show Me Shorts is a travelling festival that screens at more than 20 cinema locations nationwide. We launch the festival with a glamorous opening and awards night in Auckland. There is a second opening night event in Wellington a week later. We also provide professional development and networking opportunities for aspiring short film makers through our Screenwriting Lab, Short Film Talks, Filmmaker Resources and various masterclasses.

At Show Me Shorts, we love filmmakers. We love your creativity, aspirations, questions and how your stories bring us together.
