The Punta Gorda Short Film Festival has sold out every year since its inception since 2015. Last year we had almost 900 attendeesour biggest audience to date! If the laughter and non-stop applause is any indication, this show is a SMASH HIT and Florida Weekly agrees as it was voted the PGSFF Best Night at the Movies in 2017. We are thrilled John Wright, President of the PGCC will once again serve as MC for the evening. Director Doug LeClaire, created Asbury Shorts USA in 1981 to celebrate Independent short films.
