Short Film Festivals have their own unique significance. Though they might be less popular or glamorous, Short Film Festivals are the meeting point not only for young artists trying to make their first steps but also for established film directors who use this form they way a novelist uses the short story. Young or mature artists from all over the world are given the opportunity to publicize their work and receive the necessary help and/or recognition in order to continue doing what they most love.
