European Competition

Even outside the country's borders, Kortfilmfestival Leuven has been an important player for years. After all, the festival helps determine which short films end up on the longlist for the Oscars, the BAFTA's and the European Film Awards. Unsurprisingly, the number of submissions of films who want to enter this talent show, increases each year.

This year, the European Competition is expanded for the first time with animation films and documentaries. Because of this, the European Competition is even more varied than previous years. Come discover the films and cast your vote: because both the jury and the public hand out an Award for Best European Short film.

Here you can find the jury of the European Competition.
