HOW THE FESTIVAL WORKS

Films from each genre will be shown and the audience will get the chance to vote for their favorites. Winners will be announced at each film block and awarded the "Monroe" - an original piece of metal artwork.  The winner from each block will go head to head in the final round as our panel of judges decide who takes home the top prize as the “Best of Love Your Shorts Film Festival!”

  • Tickets are sold per film block and are $8, except for "E" for Everyone, which is $2 per ticket.  
  • You can also purchase a Weekend Pass for $55 which gets you in to all film blocks.

Love Your Shorts Film Festival, Inc.

The February festival, founded in 2010 to embrace and appreciate the art of the short film, was first shown at the Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce. Since then it has been presented at the 1923 Wayne Densch Performing Arts Center, one of a handful of historic theaters remaining in Florida. During the festival, film fans can view films up to 30 minutes each in a variety of categories and attend film workshops.

Sanford, the cultural and county seat of Seminole County, sits along the St. Johns River and features a downtown cultural corridor, numerous art galleries, annual art festival, community folk performance, active community-theater troupes, and other arts activities.

“The Love Your Shorts film festival is one of the classiest film festivals I’ve ever been to. They treat you like gold. I highly recommend them!” – Kevin O’Neill, writer/director/actor, Winter Park, Fla.

“It’s fast becoming my favorite film festival in Central Florida, because it’s so intimate and homey and friendly. There are huge crowds, and everyone is enthusiastic about film… they’re here to support local filmmakers and everybody who submitted.” – Lisa Mills, film professor at the University of Central Florida

I can say that this is by far one of our favorite festivals. We have been included in festivals in L.A. and N.Y. to London, but the way the filmmakers are treated at LYSFF is amazing.” – Joops Fragale, film director, Ormond Beach, Fla.

MISSION STATEMENT: To support, promote and recognize the art of short film and its artists.

VISION STATEMENT: The Love Your Shorts Film Festival will be a platform where film fans and filmmakers can participate, collaborate and socialize. As a respected member within the creative-arts community, we will strive to stay relevant through quality submissions, education programs and industry awareness.
