Fortnite's new spin-off film festival will be launching this weekend with a new movie event called 'Short Nite'. It looks like we might even see some Oscar Nominated movies! Now, that sounds like a cool in-game event...

Fortnite's very own film festival has been christened Short Nite, and will be filled with a program of short films. They'll run every 30 minutes on the big screen within Fortnite's non-combat Party Royale mode. Including Academy Award, BAFTA and Emmy winners, you'll be able to sit down with your friends and watch 12 short films.

When Will This Movie Night Happen?

Short Nite will take place on February 20, 2021, at 20:00 CET. It will run through until February 21, 2021, at 20:00 CET. There will be a collection of praised animated shorts shown on the big screen in Party Royale mode. Grab some popcorn, jump in with some friends (or by yourself), and enjoy your little heart out. The shorts will run on repeat for 24 hours, and combined are about 30 minutes long.

What Movies Will Be Shown, Bro?

Well, firstly don't call me 'Bro', you ain't my Bro, and I resent that. But anyway, the animated shorts come from a couple of different countries. Among them are short films that have been nominated in the past for the Academy Awards in the category ‘Best Animated Short Film'. Here's the full list!

  • Bench
  • Makin' Moves
  • Rollin' Wild
  • Car Park
  • Maestro
  • Oktapodi
  • A Single Life
  • Catastrophe
  • Commuter Glitch
  • Creature Comforts
  • Lynx & Birds

You can never go wrong with Creature Comforts, but Rollin’ Wild and Maestro also look fun. Keep in mind that you can actually turn on Subtitles, so if your English isn't perfect – they've got you covered. Just enable subtitles in sound settings. Fortnite's Party Royale mode has previously spawned great music concerts, blockbuster movies, and documentaries. It goes without saying that we're excited!
