How to Festival

Attend the Festival!


Shorts Not Pants Film Festival is taking place on a virtual platform this year. Our amazing program of films and pre-recorded Q&A sessions is accessible across Canada! Whether you live in the Yukon or Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland or Saskatchewan, you are officially invited to the 5th Annual Shorts Not Pants Film Festival!

First, check out our film guide! Our 2022 festival includes 70 short films, organized into 8 film blocks.

I want to watch these films! How can I?

  • You have two options: buy a single ticket to a specific film block, or get an All Access Pass to watch all film screenings and recorded Q&As! Get your All Access Pass here, or select the film(s) you wish to buy a single ticket for from here.
  • Our program is available to anyone residing in Canada.

Okay, I have my tickets and/or All Access Pass! Now what?

Starting at 12am EST on Monday November 21, our program will start to become available for viewing! Each day, more blocks of films will become available. Think of our festival as on-demand viewing. You can watch your selected film(s) at any time between Monday November 21 through Sunday November 27 (11:59pm EST). You will have 72 hours to watch a film once you press play.

Make sure you’re logged into the account you created to purchase your tickets/Pass, then click “Unlock” on the film you want to watch!

How do filmmaker Q&As work?

Some film screenings contain pre-recorded filmmaker Q&A sessions. If you buy a ticket to a single film block, your ticket includes access to any pre-recorded Q&A sessions for that film block. If you buy an All Access Pass, you’ll get to watch every pre-recorded Q&A session!

Can I use my Roku / Apple TV / Chromecast / etc?
