OSFF invited young short film creators from both China and abroad, affording them opportunities to participate in three units, i.e. narrative shorts, documentary shorts, and animated shorts. The competition was stratified to encompass middle school and university student groups. Through competitions, screenings, master classes, international talent forums, etc., OSFF helped outstanding student works onto global stages, promoting international cultural exchange and cooperation.
The OSFF Short Film Exhibition aimed to encourage more youth passionate about self-expression to engage in short film production and express their thoughts and emotions through art.
