Short is the new big.

January 28 to February 5

The films may be short, but Canada’s presence is nothing but big at the 44th  edition of the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival (Jan. 28 – Feb. 5, 2022). While the film festival will be an onsite event, the 37th Short Film Market (Jan. 31 – Feb. 4, 2022), with a concentration of professionals from all over the world, will be hybrid. The Canadian selection will offer great discoveries and immerse audiences into the minds of masters established in the art of storytelling. 

Not Short On Talent


Online and physical Event 

Telefilm Canada is pleased to present a selection of seven unreleased Canadian short films, which will be screened exclusively at the Clermont-Ferrand 2022 Short Film Market as part of the Not Short on Talent programme. The Not Short on Talent programme aims to increase the visibility of new Canadian short films, and to promote talent to professionals from international markets, including buyers and festival programmers. In this programme of seven Canadian shorts, filmmakers reflect on true events, explore the memories of loved ones past and present, and consider how histories inform the future.

The selection was curated by Jake Howell, a writer and independent film programmer
