2014 Ballston Spa International
Short Film Festival
Awards

The 2014 BSFF is a wrap and what a show it was! Thanks to all the filmmakers, their friends & families and film lovers who supported this year's Festival and joined us Friday & Saturday. Our indoor slates were enjoyed in the air-conditioned (and bug-free) high school auditorium. And despite the weather threats, we were once again blessed with beautiful evenings to enjoy these special films under the stars in Upstate New York!

Here is the list of award winners as announced at Saturday's after party. Congratulations to all our filmmakers!

You can find the full slates of films we screened at this link.

Mark your calendars for the 2015 Ballston Spa International Short Film Festival, August 7 & 8, 2015.


2014 BSFF Summary

The 2014 festival presented 38 short films, ranging in length from 1 to 18 minutes each. The films came from young filmmakers, emerging student filmmakers and established (but still emerging) filmmakers. Submissions came to us from across the country as well as all over the globe. Many of the films won awards at other film festivals, while nine films made their world premier at the Ballston Spa Film Festival!

Old Iron Spring-Ballston Spa, NY Over fifty short films from around the world were submitted and reviewed for consideration in the Festival. Just under half the films were from New York State, eleven came from elsewhere in the US, including Alaska, California and Florida. Ten films came from international filmmakers in eight other countries; Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Mexico and Poland. There were nine world premieres – short films which made their first festival screening anywhere in the world right here in Ballston Spa! Eighteen of the films came from young filmmakers, 21 or younger.

All told, the 4 slates presented Friday and Saturday provided 4 hours of entertainment to the folks who joined us in the Ballston Spa High School Auditorium and in the Old Iron Spring Park.
