X World Short Film Festival is an IMDb-qualifying Festival for Independent Filmmakers from all over the World, that dare to eXpress their fantasy, creativity and crazy ideas through Short Films and Scripts.

If your creation produces one or more of the following reactions (in alphabetical order):
"This is crazy!!" 
"Wait! What??!!"
...and if you think that it will make the audience feel amazed-excited-thrilled-amused, then this Festival is for you!

X World is about exciting and amazing stories, fun intrigues, new themes, unusual points of view, mysteries!
The purpose is to find, showcase, promote and award such kind of interesting works, made with Love and passion for the art of eXpression, no matter the budget or technical resources.

The Festival has been created by an Independent Filmmaker that knows, understands, Loves the world of Independent Filmmaking and knows how it feels like to have one's own work showcased and appreciated!
Every submitted Project is watched (or read) by the Judges with maximum attention and dedication, to fully consider and honor the eXpressive talent and work of all the Artists involved.

Due to Federal and Nevada State mandates, and circumstances beyond control, with very heavy hearts, the AOF MegaFest has postponed the 2020 Live Event until 2021.
Regardless of these adverse developments we will go on announcing 2020 Nominations and Awards Winners shortly.


The 2020 and the 2021 Editions Live Event and Celebrations, will take place from July 26 to August 1, 2021 at the Galaxy Theatres Boulevard Mall IN LAS VEGAS (Nevada, USA), as part of the beautiful MegaFest Festival Family.

Based on recent global events, many of MEGA Fest vendors and partners CAN NOT guarantee that their business or service will be available to us based in circumstances beyond their control. State and Federal mandates may prohibit them from offering their services.
In response to these developments the "X WORLD SHORT FILM FESTIVAL" events at MEGA Fest will offer an Online Event from August 28 - September 1, 2020 and the Live Event in Las Vegas from September 2 to September 6, 2020.
Should Federal or State leaders close locations and vendors at that time, the ENTIRE "X WORLD SHORT FILM FESTIVAL" Program will be held Online. Thank you!

Soo, you can keep submitting, until July 31! 🙂✨
