Renowned San Jose Short Film Festival returns with virtual event

The 12th Annual San Jose Short Film Festival is carrying on – virtually of course, given the COVID-19 pandemic.

The lineup of more than 100 short films, interviews, and exclusive musical performances runs October 22 to 25. Films are blocked into 20 screening segments, from a wide range of genres.

This year, the festival has moved to online streaming, with tickets available for individual blocks or VIP packages. It is a departure from the 2019 event, held at Santana Row.

Higher cost options for patrons include a wine experience with two bottles and accompanying snacks and event merchandise.

“Music and fine wine have been a long tradition at our festival,” said co-founder and co-producer, Bill Hargreaves.

Tickets start at $8, with all-access passes for $25. To purchase tickets, click here.
