The 3rd annual Traveling Shorts Film Festival

2014 Submission Period Now Open!

The 3rd Annual Traveling Shorts Film Festival (#TravShortsFest) is now open for submissions! Launched in 2011, this nomadic film festival showcases the digital storytelling by students from around the world, hosted by THINK Global School.

Formerly titled the THINK Film Festival, the change in name is reflective of our focuses on:

  • celebrating short films created by our fellow students across the globe
  • sharing them with anyone anywhere.

This year’s Film Festival will take place in our current host city of Hiroshima, Japan.
