Film festivals can be found in many cities and countries all over the world. Festivals provide a stage for new and established filmmakers to promote and share their work with new audiences.

No matter how big or small, all film festivals have one thing in common: they celebrate the art of filmmaking.

The annual Pacific Coast International Short Film Festival is back for its third year, ready to showcase talented filmmakers from around the globe. This year the Pacific Coast International Short Film Festival will show 12 short films.

Each film will run for 15 minutes or less and can be anything from documentary to animated short, experimental film to non-fiction short.
