Welcome to the Berkshire Short Film Festival! 

The Berkshires are a year-round destination known for their world class arts and culture with the Philharmonic Orchestra and John Williams at Tanglewood every summer and Oscar, Tony and Emmy award-winning actors onstage throughout the season at Williamstown Theatre Festival.  Jacob's Pillow brings in dance performances from all over the globe and now we want to give you the chance to round out the music, stage and dance scene with your films here at the Berkshire Short Film Festival!
