International Short Film Market

14th edition of what has become a leading event in the short film world. ​
Reserved to accredited professionals only

The magnificent Cures Marines hotel, right by the Trouville-sur-Mer beach, will once again host the Off-Courts Short Film Market. A great way to celebratethis event which has seduced numerous professionals.

More than 2000 shorts submitted this year are available at individual viewing stations in the Short Film Market. The 13th edition of what has become a leading event in the short film world.

Its reputation was quickly built, notably thanks to its calendar: it provides a continuity in exchanges and meetings between professionals of the short film industry. It also corresponds to the fall return of television channels that can communicate their choice of programs, new grids, and their new pricing policies.

Numerous professional meetings, one-on-one pitches, round tables and debates, networking cocktails, and more for our market attendees.
