VAF Wildcards

With the Wildcards, the Flanders Audiovisual Fund (VAF) invests in young up-and-coming film talent. Each year, they award the most promising short films by bachelor or master students from Flemish film schools. A jury per category chooses who wins. The Wildcard-winners will not only be festively celebrated, but are also screened at Kortfilmfestival Leuven.
