Movies are magic!

From the first screen until the final credits, a whole world unfolds as the filmmaker leads you through a flight of imagination.

Join us for the launch of a new film festival


that honors film tradition while encouraging talented filmmakers to expand our minds and explore what we think about the world through short films.

We also honor screenwriting with a category for short screenplays.

An opportunity to do good –

  • Maybe give a troubled youth a productive new path
  • Provide an inspired filmmaker a chance to be recognized and launch a career
  • Give a forum for a fledging screenwriter to have his/her work seen and heard
  • Draw a community together to develop…
  • An Excellent Event

And a tax deduction because we’re a 501(c)(3) not-for -profit where your contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the IRS laws.

Please be generous!

Copa Shorts Film Fest, Inc. is an IRS designated 501(c)(3) organization.
