Good things come in small packages. 

Show Me Shorts is New Zealand’s leading short film festival. They work to connect New Zealanders with the best short films from here and around the world; celebrate excellence in short film making; and foster the New Zealand short film community.

Each year, from over 1,000 entries from around the world, their experienced team of short film lovers curate a selection of the 40 best short films and six best music videos. They serve them up at over 20 cinemas nationwide, from Dargaville to Stewart Island, and launch the festival with a glamorous awards night, celebrating the best and brightest filmmaking talent.

Wellington Opening Night

Wellington is a prolific short film making city, so Show Me Shorts makes a special effort to acknowledge local talent at their official opening event. The festivities begin with a complimentary glass of Opawa wine as you arrive, and the opportunity to mingle with the filmmakers, festival organisers and industry professionals.

They will play the winning film from each of their award categories too. This is the only night all winning films will screen together in one session in Wellington.
