Whether it's drama, comedy, horror, documentary, or even experimental, there's a place for every filmmaker's unique voice. Animation and Sci-fi are also commonly seen genres in these festivals. Essentially, if you can tell a compelling story in a short format, there's a festival that's likely to embrace it. So, budding filmmakers, don't be afraid to explore and push boundaries with your work.
