from the festival program:
Welcome to the TucsonFilm.com ShortFest, where "Short Films and Big Ideas" take center screen. We have battled to build a different kind of film festival — one where the filmmaker and their films remain the focus. We charged no entry fee, personally viewed each and every film submitted, and will award prizes based on merit. Also, we will make no financial profit from the filmmakers who have already poured everything they have into their films. That may seem obvious to some, but it is a fundamentally different approach than most film festivals (including those which force filmmakers to pay before being considered for alumni screenings)!

This festival is our sincere gift to you, the truly independent filmmaker and film fan.
We hope in turn that it inspires you to make more films, to help other filmmakers, and
to give of yourself in your own film community. We believe as professional filmmakers
this is our responsibility, and we invite you to join us for the benefit of all!
