World Class Film Festival | San Francisco Bay Area


People coming together for the sake of humanity has never been more important than at this time.


Film is a great connector of our culture and a unifier of the human spirit.

Our mission is to give voice to independent filmmakers from around the world through short films, uniting humanity through the experience of truth, vision and the new ideas generated through the art of cinema.

Located in the California Sonoma Wine Country north of San Francisco, the Healdsburg International Short Film Festival sets the new standard for short film festivals.


Compared to full-length films, shorts offer:

  • Exposure to vastly more films per screening block

  • More filmmakers in attendance

  • More films that can resonate with your taste

  • An incredible variety of cinematic voices 

  • Contact with more cultures from across the world
