Boston Short Film Festival 2022 Award Winners Unveiled:


The 2022 Boston Short Film Festival featured a great selection of short films originating from the U.S. and from all over the world (Poland, South Korea, Sweden, Norway, Iran, Austria, Georgia, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, France, Canada). Festival host and manager Maarten Cornelis looks back on the event: "This year's festival was the biggest success we have ever seen! Every night was sold out with a long waitlist. Thanks to our sponsors, we were able to offer everyone free tickets this year and the audience was very excited about this and of course, our selection of movies. Out of the 3,000 films we received, only 42 made it to the official selection. It was tough making our selection this year and I want to congratulate all filmmakers selected or not on their amazing work. We are honored they shared it with us. This year, we introduced a few networking events, and they were a success. For next year, our event will be even bigger and we are so excited to build this amazing festival and bring it to even a larger audience!"


With this year's panel of jury members now having cast their final votes, the Boston Short Film Festival is delighted to announce to you today the award winners for its 2022 edition.
