A film festival is coming to Fortnite!
Starting February 20th, 2021, at 2 PM ET, join players worldwide for the Fortnite Presents Short Nite Film Festival. Running until February 21st, 2021, at 2 PM ET, Short Nite brings acclaimed animated film shorts to Party Royale’s Big Screen. Grab some popcorn (in real life or in-game), jump in with yourself or some friends, and enjoy a series of short-form cinema.
The animated shorts featured in Short Nite come from around the world. (Among them are shorts that were previously nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film!)
The total runtime of the Short Nite series is about 30 minutes, and the series will repeat non-stop for 24 hours. (No movie tickets required; jump in whenever you’d like!) If you’re new to Party Royale, check out our guide for getting to the Big Screen. Players will also have the option to watch Short Nite in standard Battle Royale via Picture-in-Picture, available at the start of Short Nite and every two hours afterwards.
Starting the day before Short Nite — February 19th, 2021, at 7 PM ET — the new Jumbo Popcorn Emote will be available in the Item Shop.
