Short Film Corner, is a dynamic platform for the film professionals to meet and greet each other and to search for better opportunities to sell their talents and works. Short Film Corner is an event where you can showcase the movie to festival attendees like Directors, Producers, Buyers and other delegates in a scheduled time. The aim of this category is to provide support to the young film makers for networking.

Last year, 420 short films directed by some brilliant filmmakers were screened under the non-competition category.

This year 100 short films will be screened along with feature films as a part of ALIIFF Short Film Corner 2017, from which top 30 short films made between 2016 January – 2017 July will be included in the competition category. All these films will have Hall screening (projector screen)instead of Desktop screening.
