Toronto, January 25, 2012 – Placing itself at the forefront of changing technology, the CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival (WSFF) is going digital for 2012 Festival screenings. As the premier venue for the exhibition and promotion of short film in North America, the WSFF is dedicated to celebrating quality and creative range in short film.

For the first time this year, festival films will be projected via digital format during the festival, offering filmmakers added flexibility and financial benefits. This evolution in exhibition technology allows filmmakers to showcase their work in the best possible way, ensuring quality projection at every screening.

Going digital will directly reduce the environmental footprint of the festival, decrease the cost of shipping for filmmakers and eliminate the need for videotape. This new era brings with it a lot less worry – there won't be the nightmare of accepted films lost in the mail, or stuck at customs. The WSFF is excited to be paving the way in the international film festival community.

The CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival is currently accepting submissions for the 2012 Festival, taking place June 5th-10 in downtown Toronto. Submissions are open until February 3, 2012. For more information, please CLICK HERE
