Planning for 2016:
The McMinnville Short Film Festival continues to grow! The 6th Annual MSFF is expanding to a 2-day event to be held on Saturday & Sunday, October 1-2, 2016.
Call for entries will open in early December. We'll have lots of announcements in the next few months, so stay tuned!
This festival is open to amateur and professional filmmakers alike. The goal of the MSFF is to provide a venue where short-film filmmakers can have their films viewed by an
audience and to provide a networking opportunity to filmmakers in order to learn and share with each other.
5th Annual Film Festival - a huge success!
The 5th Annual McMinnville Short Film Festival was held October 3, 2015, at the McMinnville Cinema in McMinnville, OR,
with all proceeds benefitting the work of the McMinnville Sunrise Rotary Foundation.
See the complete list of Winners and Official Selections.
A huge THANK YOU to all the filmmakers, presenters and supporters who made this year's event our best yet! And it's not too soon to start planning your entries for next year...

interacting so closely with my community. The McMinnville Short Film Festival is an exciting event that means a lot to filmmakers and film enthusiasts alike. Thank you to all who make it possible."

From the winner of the 2014 Fiction: Comedy Award:
"The McMinnville Short Film Festival was the spectacular opportunity that I'd been waiting for, to have my work viewed by an audience on the big screen for the first time.
Although being chosen to screen at the festival was plenty honor enough, being awarded as the winner in my category
[for Dee-Ort] gave me a new level of confidence and validity as a filmmaker.
Thank you, Dan and Nancy Morrow, for making this all possible!"
-Jordan Mackor (Salem, OR)
