Short Films


The Edmonton Jewish Film Festival is proud to be showcasing a juried selection of short films from film makers around the world. These ‘shorts’ will be presented after our feature films. Exhibiting these films at the EJFF provides opportunities to see a variety of films which may not receive mass distribution, and for independent filmmakers to reach new audiences and explore new opportunities for distribution.
