Big news! The 4th Annual Lamorinda ShortDocs Film Fest is back, and better than ever! We are pleased to announce that this year’s festival screening will be hosted by the California Independent Film Festival (CAIFF) and will take place on August 25th at the historic Orinda Theatre. Completed films will be due by June 16th.

Lamorinda ShortDocs is a short documentary film competition open to filmmakers of all ages who live or attend school in the Lamorinda Community. Films must be 6 minutes or less and will be judged in 4 categories by age: Elementary School, Middle School, High School, and Adult. Finalists in each category will be selected and those films will be screened publicly during the Lamorinda ShortDocs live screening at CAIFF. One winner in each age group will be selected and announced at the screening, where an Audience Favorite Student Film will also be awarded. Finalists are expected to attend the August 25th event.
