Epic has announced a film festival for Fortnite called Short Nite, scheduled for February 20.

The film festival will run from February 20 at 2p ET through February 21 at 2p ET. This festival aims to bring, “acclaimed animated film shorts to Party Royale’s Big Screen.” These shorts will be presented from around the world.

These films will run for around 30 minutes in length and will repeat for 24 hours. You don’t need “tickets” or anything to participate. Simply pop into Fortnite any time during the event period to check out the films.

There will be a new jumbo popcorn emote available on February 19 at 7p ET to prep for the event. You can grab the emote from the shop. Subtitles will also be included for those films which include dialogue. If you’re wondering how to enable subtitles, check out the instructions here.
