EFA SHORT MATTERS

July 7th, 2018

On its seventeenth edition DokuFest will be featuring films from the European Film Academy selection of the Best European Shorts competing for the prestigious EFA Short Matters Award.

The contenders provide a wide range of cinematic experiences that range from films documenting the struggles of a family in Buenos Aires, a heartbreaking underage pregnancy for a Romanian Roma girl to a film describing affection through the impact on a distant solar system in outer space.

These extraordinary short films have moved viewers across the world and DokuFest is proud to present them to its audience. This is the sixth year that DokuFest has included the EFA Shorts in its program.

This year’s festival will include all 15 films that were nominated for the prestigious European Film Awards (EFA) Best Short Film in 2017 award.

The EFA Shorts award is organized in co-operation with fifteen partner festivals each year, at each of which an independent international jury presents one of the European short films in competition with a nomination for European Short Film EFA Short Matters award.
