The CISF is extremely excited for its Spring showcase season and plans on becoming one of the bigger independent short film showcase arenas around. The passion and commitment that each filmmaker and writer puts into his or her work deserves to be acknowledged. This is why we here at the California International Shorts Festival take tremendous pride in putting on a memorable event and screening the works of the many talented, dedicated and unsung filmmakers.  CISF offers 9 categories of competition. Screenings will take place in Hollywood CA.
