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.
