Established in 2015,  GSF Awards recognizes excellence in short films under 15 minutes long in a variety of subjects. Filmmakers can submit their films in one or more subject category. The competition is open to both amateur and professional filmmakers from around the world. Films, including titles and credits, must be in English or in any language with English subtitles.



In 1909, the Grand Duke Michael of Russia, grandson of the Tsar, moved to Cannes to flee the imperial court and live a forbidden love. Cannes’ accomodations having neither the desired comfort nor the splendor expected for the receptions he intended to host there, he financed almost all of the hotel’s construction which was named “Carlton”. In 1913, the most beautiful hotel that Cannes had ever seen opened.
