Super Shorts New York Film Festival 2023 Award Winners Revealed


The Super Shorts New York Film Festival celebrated its 2023 edition last week with three screening nights showing shorts from around the globe. Festival manager and host Maarten Cornelis: "Our 2023 edition was such a great success! I am so proud of the brilliant work we were able to present to a sold out theater every night. This was the 3rd year in a row that SSNY took place at the Film Noir Cinema - part of the last remaining video stores in NYC. We are so proud of being part of this historical place and are looking forward to bring our festival back next year!"

About Super Shorts NY:

With annual film festivals in London, New York, and Los Angeles, Super Shorts Film Festival highlights independent short film talent from around the globe. Talent Circle in London founded the Super Shorts London Film Festival in 2003, to focus explicitly on short films in all its forms and shapes. During its original eleven year run, the festival has shown over 2,000 incredible short films, from slick 35mm shorts to weird and wonderful experimental films. Unfortunately, in its original incarnation, the festival came to an end in 2014. Inspired by that original movement, the revived Super Shorts London Film Festival has continued since 2018 to emphasize lesser known, vanguard cinematic works and further its tradition of galvanizing budding talent. In 2020, under the wings of Cinematory LLC, Super Shorts brought to life two new festivals at new exciting locations in New York and Los Angeles. Super Shorts Film Festival creates an intimate atmosphere and space for unique visionaries and voices. True to their history, the different festivals screen films of both novices and veterans—with medium and low budgets—from all over the globe. Super Shorts Film Festival's goal is to create a warm, open atmosphere in which filmmakers, fans, critics, and producers can watch the films of emerging talents, explore new cinematic techniques and styles, and award cinematic excellence.
