Watch Now: Short Films from the 2023 Filmfort Film Festival

A banner that reads Filmfort + Filmmaker: Online Showcase Streaming March 23-26, 2023 Beginning 9am ET.

Filmmaker is happy to partner once again with the Filmfort Film Festival by exclusively hosting four short films from this year’s lineup, which will be available to view on our site through Sunday. The three day festival—which occurs during the Treefort Music Fest in Boise, Idaho—highlights an array of emerging independent cinema. Alongside robust film programming, Filmfort also features DIY panels and filmmaker Q&As in the heart of the city’s downtown area.

The four short films we’ve teamed up to share include an experimental documentary with music by Phillip Glass, a time-loop narrative spurred by insomnia and grief, the story of a scholar of vibrations whose life becomes shaky as a result and an engrossing tale of a mythical goddess.

You can find each film embedded below, and check out the rest of Filmfort’s lineup here.
