The Miami Short Film Festival (MsFF) is a not-for-profit arts organization founded in 2002 by the dedicated producer/actor William Vela.
MsFF’s goal year after year focuses on motivating directors, screenwriters, actors, and producers to make their films and share them with fellow film makers and industry professionals.
Serving as a platform to filmmakers around the world, the festival has screened over 800 short films from more than 40 countries. MsFF is an international event and the only film festival in South Florida dedicated exclusively to the short form.
