Aspen Shortsfest

Like the elevation in the Rockies, the competition for Aspen Shortsfest is high, but for those lucky enough to get their short programmed, nothing beats a weekend of mountain air and the dream of following in the footsteps of such prestigious alumni as Damien Chazelle, Jason Reitman, and Sarah Polley—all of whom screened their shorts at Aspen Shortsfest before going on to their own respective illustrious careers. Oscar qualification and cash prizes are just the icing on top of the mountain.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”
