Shorts

Following our tradition of comprehensive programming, the Newport Beach Film Festival has the largest shorts program within a major film festival in the United States. NBFF accepts and screens well over 200 short movies culled from submissions received from all over the world. During the festival up to 40 shorts programs are presented each year. These programs are put together by the shorts programming team showcasing the best of the submitted movies in a symbiotic way. Lively Q & A sessions conclude most programs.

An eclectic mix of shorts is part of the festival each year including: Live-Action Narrative, Documentary, Action Sports, Animation, Dance for Camera, Family shorts and Collegiate Showcases.
