Stella Adler Academy Hollywood Short + Sweet Film Festival

We invite you to submit your short film (5-10 minutes) and be part of an amazing new festival based in the heart of Hollywood. The Stella Adler Academy Hollywood Short+Sweet Film Festival is open to all comers but most welcome are local film makers.

Let’s face it - attention spans are not getting any longer and this celebration of cinema, creativity and storytelling is a professional pathway for talented film makers, writers, actors, cinematographers and directors.

We know something about how it's done… The Stella Adler Academy of Acting & Theatre – Los Angeles is a world renowned acting school located in the heart of Hollywood, CA offering extensive training for the serious actor in theatre, film, and television. The Technique grew out of Stella Adler’s work with Stanislavski, the father of modern acting and has been studied by many of the world's most notable actors, directors, and writers including: Marlon Brando, Robert DeNiro, Salma Hayek, Benicio Del Toro, Holland Taylor, Gary Ross, Eric Stoltz and Mark Ruffalo, and many more.

If your film is chosen to be part of the first festival you’ll join a program that features local and international films that will be presented at the Stella Adler Theatre on Hollywood Blvd in July/August 2017. You’ll have the chance to win Awards and Prizes. Of course we'll make sure that the 'right' people are invited along and your work is seen to it's best advantage.

The Best Film (chosen by respected industry judges) and the People’s Choice Winner (chosen by the audience) will be selected to take part in the International Short+Sweet Film Festival Gala Final on August 24 at the beautiful and historic Egyptian Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. That’s where the winning films from S+S Film Festivals in Sydney, Melbourne, Manila, Dubai and Chennai will compete to take out the International Best Film Awards.

The festival is a proud member of the Short+Sweet family - the biggest 10 minute performing arts festival in the world - with events in 30+ cities across 12 countries. It’s been around for 20 years with the first S+S Theatre Festival in Sydney Australia in 2002 and to date have presented over 5,500 original new works in Theatre, Music and Dance. It might have started on the other side of the world in far off Australia but the global home of the S+S Film is now right here in Hollywood where it belongs.
