About USFF

UPTOWN Short Film Festival
The Uptown Short Film Festival (USFF) is a 2-day festival in the heart of the Big Apple, Harlem USA.

The goal of USFF is to express and showcase the diversity of content found in the latest productions from around the world and presents it to enthusiastic film audiences, aspiring actors, filmmakers, and industry professionals.

USFF seeks the next generation of writers, directors, producers, and actors while celebrating innovative storytelling from diverse and inclusive backgrounds. We seek films in which the above the line creative team and the dramatic agency of the film’s main characters must minimally be fully shared by individuals from underrepresented communities of color.

The Uptown Short Film Festival will showcase the best short films and it’s filmmakers from our space and Uptown signature celebrations.
