Brad Schmett, Broker Associate with Luxury Homes by Keller Williams today announced that the real estate community welcomes the 21th Annual Palm Springs ShortFest and Film Market, featuring more than 300 short films curated from 3,000 submissions from a record breaking 82 countries. This seven day film celebration will turn the spotlight on luxury homes as film buffs head to the Coachella Valley to attend.
The festival is one of the largest showcases of short films in the United States. Films are submitted in multiple categories including animation, student animation, live-action and documentaries. The huge celebration of the art of the short film includes an amazing lineup of seminars, special presentations and receptions and includes a Shortfest Film Market. The Palm Springs ShortFest is only one of a handful of Academy Award qualifying events in existence. To date, the festival has screened 97 films that have gone on to garner nominations for the Academy Awards.
Schmett recently commented on the event, “With over 400 filmmakers attending this festival annually, it is a world class international event and a primary scouting ground for new talent. No wonder it brings in tens of thousands every year looking for their place among the stars. This festival also educates, getting the word out globally about new subjects and genres. The impact for the local real estate community is phenomenal. Our phones don’t stop ringing and we are delighted to meet promising new talent and lots of new neighbors!”
Several local venues will host the showings, all sponsored by the Palm Springs International Film Society. With a concurrent Film Market of 2,700 titles, the ShortFest is a whirlwind of fun and activity for the entire week.
