12th Annual Elgin Short Film Festival Cancelled ~ see you in 2021!

Saturday, September 19, 2020

CANCELLED. See you in 2021! Yes, we are bringing the glitz, glam and a bit of Hollywood to The Hemmens in downtown Elgin! See the best of the top pre-selected films submitted by independent filmmakers from any and everywhere. The top short films will be shown at the festival on the big screen. You be the judge! The people's choice award is chosen by audience votes during intermission. The top 3 films will be selected by a panel of experienced celebrity judges. Prizes and trophies will be awarded in the second half of evening. It's a fun and exciting evening out, and make sure to come early for the pre-show entertainment including red carpet arrival. So get your friends and family together and come down for this unique event! We'll have delicious movie fare available including popcorn, candy and a cash bar with both adult and non-adult beverages. All you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the show!
