About Nantucket Shorts Festival

JohnSheaOUR MISSION
To celebrate and encourage filmmaking on Nantucket by organizing and executing an annual ‘Shorts’ festival.

 
OUR STORY
Proving that size really does matter, The Nantucket Shorts Festival celebrates short form movies of 2 to 10 minutes in length starring or inspired by Nantucket. Our festival was founded in 2013 by five local Nantucket artists interested in creating a community of support and a forum for filmmakers both amateur and professional to present their work. The unique format of the event allows both experienced and amateur filmmakers to be selected to present their art on the big screen at the Dreamland Theater in an entertaining evening unlike any other. Facilitated by NCTV (CH 18), the Nantucket Shorts Festival is currently seeking submissions for this year's festival. A jury will screen each submitted film and select the top films to appear at the festival.
