SSFF & ASIA
Founded in 1999 with the aim to introduce short films to Japan, Short Shorts Film Festival (SSFF) was certified as an Academy Award-recognized film festival in 2004. 

Also, “Short Shorts Film Festival Asia (SSFF ASIA)” was born with the aim of disseminating new visual culture from Asia and nurturing up-and-coming young filmmakers. We are holding a film festival under the collective name “SSFF & ASIA“. 

In 2018, to commemorate the film festival’s 20th anniversary, the Grand Prix became the George Lucas Award, named after director George Lucas. In 2019, four competitions, and from 2022, five competitions, including the Animation Competition, have acquired the right to be eligible for nomination at the following year’s Academy Awards®︎ in the short film category.
