About the Festival

The Love Your Shorts Film Festival is an epic annual showcase in the heart of Sanford, Florida, where short films from all over Florida, the United States, and the world come to life!

Humble beginnings: an early screening of the festival – Founded in 2010, this festival is all about embracing and appreciating the incredible art of the short film. From its humble beginnings at the Greater Sanford Regional Chamber of Commerce building known as Monroe Hall, the festival has soared to new heights and now finds its home at the iconic 1923 Ritz Theater, one of Florida’s few remaining historic theaters.
