The Festival

REGARD - Saguenay International Short Film Festival is the largest short film festival in North America. Established in 1995 and growing steadily ever since, the event presents nearly two hundred short films from Quebec and around the world every year. The REGARD Festival has the mission of promoting independent short films that reflect an innovative spirit and demonstrate a high-quality artistic approach.

Widely respected among film professionals, REGARD brings together hundreds of directors, producers, Canadian and international buyers, distributors, journalists and scriptwriters, who come to Saguenay to present their films and participate in the activities (workshops, forums, master classes, video library, etc.) of the Short Film Market, the only event of its kind in Quebec. REGARD includes an international competition, a parallel competition and a youth competition. It also presents themed selections. Nearly $100,000 CAD in grants and services are awarded to the winning filmmakers. The two Grand Prize winners for the official competition are eligible for consideration for the Live Action Oscars category. REGARD has several juries to select the winners: the official jury, the audience jury, the young cinephiles jury, the parallel jury and the AQCC and FIPRESCI critics’ juries.


Even if we don't know yet the impact of the current pandemic on the next edition of the Festival, we keep in mind to program as many short films as usual for 2022. Our program will be shared and promoted to the audience, taking care of respecting public health standards as well as the work of all the artists. No reimbursement of submissions fees will be made.
