SALÓN GALLOS

Welcome to Every Leaf International Short Film Festival, celebrating short films from around the world!
In our inaugural year, we intend to establish ourselves as an inclusive celebration of BIPOC and LGBTQ filmmakers with those who identify as Womyn to the front.
We want you to feel supported and recognized online every step of the way. We will announce all official selections in our Instagram stories and on our tumblr page. We will specially select films for independent posts and short interviews free of charge.
If you would like to secure an interview, you can submit to the SPOTLIGHT category.
All official selections will receive laurels and all winners in each category will receive digital certificates and physical trophies made in the Yucatán.
The film festival will be held in different locations around the world, this year it will be held in Mérida, Yucatán in Mexico.

We look forward to viewing & celebrating your hard work!
