In recent decades, the European Film Awards (EFA) - the European counterparts of the Oscars - have been gaining more and more prestige. The longlist of candidates in the short film category is determined by 25 leading film festivals, including the Leuven Short Film Festival. We will find out who wins on December 11. The EFA candidates are shown in three programs, each with a varied palette of animation, live action and documentary. Block 1 shows the 5 short films (including two Belgian ones) that have officially received a nomination. Blocks 2 and 3 have been supplemented with the best short films that were on the long list.
