European Short Films Competition

From France to Finland, from Spain to Estonia and from the UK to Switzerland, our European short film competition illustrates once more the bountiful variety in productions from our continent. And it shows in the represented genres: werewolves, time travel, dystopias, westerns… Let’s just say that you won’t be disappointed.
