Programme 2 (2004-2013)

96 minuten

As the Short Film Festival celebrates its 25th anniversary, it is time for a look back at our rich history. Four programmers who have worked for the festival, the founders and the general coordinator will be your guides. They were all given the difficult task of selecting the very best films, which we present in three different programs. They are happy to tell you a bit more about their choices before the start of each screening. This program is a selction of Frank Moens, Johan Van Schaeren and Maarten Alexander.

This compilation contains the following short films:
