SHQFF 2021 短片单元征片正式启动Submissions Open for SHQFF 2021 Shorts



The arrival of the third decade of the 21st century marks the start of a brand new era. The span of a decade, with everything that can happen in the span of ten years, is always used to divide time. This implies that another period of accumulation starts while another chance of recapitulation awaits.

As time consistently links different lives together, it also composes stories out of the ordinary. Every year since the establishment of SHQFF in 2016, we have collected a variety of stories from all over the world for our Shorts unit and, in turn, shared them with our audience  through the miracles of the silver screen. What incredible stories will we see in the 2020s? In what ways will these stories define the coming era? We are anxious for the answers as much as you are.


Submissions for the 2021 SHQFF Shorts is NOW OPEN. Following our tradition, you may submit your short film to either the Asian Short Film Competition or the World Short Film Screening.



If your LGBTQIA+ story is set in Asia or heavily features Asian elements, please submit it to the Asian Short Film Competition. If your film is about LGBTQIA+ experiences but not focused on Asia, please submit your entry to the World Short Film Screening.

This year’s SHQFF Shorts submission deadline is July 31st.




You can submit your film through our FilmFreeway account at:

or our official website at
