11th Annual Short. Sweet. Film Fest.

Feb. 23-27, 2022

The Short. Sweet. Film Fest. is a short film only film festival created by actual filmmakers. The eleventh annual Fest will showcase films under 40 minutes to the growing art scene in the greater Cleveland area and highlight the works of student to veteran filmmakers across the country. They look for short, sweet, original, and unique films that would often soar under the radar of most festivals.

The Fest will take place in the Alex Theater at the Metropolitan at the 9 hotel in the heart of downtown Cleveland. Filmmakers and patrons can stay at the hotel at a discounted rate and enjoy food and beverages throughout the festival.

Films will also be included in our online festival under the discretion of the filmmaker. Patrons will have the option to watch film in person and/or online.
