Lancaster International Short Film Festival

Lancaster International Short Film Festival

The 8th annual Lancaster International Short Film Festival (LISFF) was a great success! 48 movies were shown between Thursday, November 12 and Saturday, November 14, when the last set of films blasted against the screen at local theater and art house, Zoetropolis. Various awards were also given out on Saturday evening, followed by an after party for all award winners and VIP ticket purchasers.

Formerly called the Rumschpringe International Film Festival, and led by founder and Lancaster native Michael Hoober, the LISFF aims to create an annual destination “for short film aficionados to commune upon the best of this contemporary and accessible art form.”

LISFFWinners were chosen from five categories: drama, comedy, horror, animation, and documentary. The best of each category was chosen, as well as various other awards, including a Grand Prize of $1,000.

Winner of Best Documentary and Best Home Grown, Alexander Monelli created a documentary showcasing Robert Brock, owner of the Hole in the Wall Puppet Theater right here in Lancaster, PA.
