European Competition - 6

100 minuten

The Leuven International Short Film Festival has been an important international player for several years now. The festival has a say in which short films make the longlist for the Oscars, the BAFTAs and the European Film Awards. It is not surprising that we always receive a ton of entries for the European competition. All of the films that we handpicked and present to you in six different programs are eligible for a Jury Award as well as an Audience Award. That means you help to decide which title will win Best European Film and will be purchased by CANVAS.
