Founded in 2013, the 1895 Film Society provides monthly screenings for students, staff, alumni and external guests at the Guangdong Literary & Art Vocational College. We present a wide range of contemporary and classic cinema, including blockbusters, indie productions, cult classics, arthouse & foreign films. We also host Q&As and film premieres, as well as screenings of selected works from local filmmakers.
Since its foundation, the Society has been hosting a yearly film festival (also known as the ‘International Short Film Festival Canton’). The Festival is entirely lead by students and provides its attendees a cinema-grade projection quality and an unmissable discovery and networking opportunity. The Festival aims at showcasing the highest-quality and most original short film productions. ISFFC has had the honor of providing opportunities and making known the budding filmmakers every year to an inclusive future. ISFFC is proud that for years it has been the exposure for numerous filmmakers on their journey as a professional filmmaker.
We are thrilled to announce the start of the Seventh International Short Film Festival Canton happening October 15th through the 18th, 2019 at the beautiful Guo Lanying Opera House in Panyu, Guangzhou. (ISFFC takes 7 years, but it is the first edition of the international short film competition.)
The festival will screen more than 100 short fictions, short documentaries, short animations etc. of filmmakers, students and teams.
Our final nominees are judged by our Jury members of Film professionals, such as Directors, Producers, Critics, Director of Photography, etc and choose the final winner of each category.
More information will be coming out on that soon…
