A Night at the Drive-In

The Shoreline Short Short Film Festival is back for its fifth season. This time in the form of a pop-up drive-in! Join ShoreLake Arts and your community for a special night of celebrating the art of the short film. Get your ticket today!

Filmmakers from all over Washington have submitted their “short short” films and you’re invited to see the selected films on Saturday, April 24, 7pm, located at Shorewood High School (enter the parking lot on 175th). In the case of extreme rain or high winds, we have 2 backup dates reserved, #1 Sunday, April 25th, #2 Sunday, May 9th.

Car arrival is from 7-8pm, and the program will run from 8:15-11pm.

The Shoreline Short Short Film Festival aims to support emerging and developing filmmakers in Washington State and encourage appreciation for the art of filmmaking in our community.

We're excited to bring this single night short film festival back to the community! It's important to ensure that our local filmmakers (and artists) have an opportunity to get their work shown to a live audience again. Truly nothing beats the energy and spirit of a live audience. Even from our bubbles and the seats of our cars, it's still a very impactful evening. All watching and reacting at the same time. This group of filmmakers exemplify the very belief that creativity can't be quarantined.

The evening will showcase a juried selection of 3-12 minute films made by emerging and developing filmmakers working in our community. The top filmmakers will be honored with handmade Golden Sasquatch statues, cash prizes, NW Camera Co. rental discounts, and goodies from Trader Joe’s! Plus, audience members can vote for their favorite filmmaker to win the People’s Choice Award!

Categories include General Films (Drama), Comedy, Music Video, Animation, and Student Film. We had 61 total submissions this year! A big thank you to everyone who submitted this year. This was the most competitive and diverse group of film submissions in our 5 years.

All films are unrated and a select few contain adult/mature content. Viewer discretion is advised.
