ABOUT 24FPS

Now in its 21st year, the 24fps International Short Film Festival continues to present challenging and progressive programs of short films by aspiring and established artists from around the world

The juried competition is open to any work made outside the major worldwide film studio system, and provides cash awards to the festival’s top films in six major categories.

Festival Director Barry Smoot, who also serves as the Paramount Artistic Director, says 24fps “was created to encourage aspiring filmmakers and give them a unique, landmark theatrical setting to showcase their work. As a nationally recognized historic theatre, we are dedicated to preserving and celebrating the cinematic art form. It seems only fitting that we have a hand in encouraging its future as well.”
