About the Festival

The Filmingo International Short Film Festival is a one-of-its-kind short film festival that is undertaken with the aim to establish a platform for the fascinating world of Short Films. The festival’s programming is unique in a way that it promotes and inspires new talent, provides them with a platform to showcase their talent, and helps them reach a global audience for their work.

Filmingo began its journey in 2016 when the first edition of the festival was held in November 2016 to widespread acclaim and praise. The event was inaugurated by noted Marathi film industry celebrity Shri Subodh Bhave and a total of 169 entries were received that year, from which about 50 short films were selected for screening at the festival held on 3rd, 4th and 5th November 2016 at Ravindra Natya Mandir, Mumbai. Over the next three years, Filmingo 2017, Filmingo 2018  and Filmingo 2019 have gone one to raise the bar and have each received close to 300 short film submissions, and the award-winning short films have gone on to win critical acclaim at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

The fifth annual edition of the Filmingo International Short Film Festival is scheduled for January 2021. It will be a fully online-only event with the screening of films taking place on a dedicated, private screening-room website.

Cannes Special Awards

The Filmingo International Short Film Festival includes 5 Special Awards that are rewarded to outstanding short films every year. As part of this special award, five incredible short films are sent to the Short Film Corner of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

The filmmakers also stand a chance to fly to the festival in France to officially represent their short films, with all their travel expenses paid.
