EFA SHORT MATTERS | DOKUFESTJuly 4, 2019
This is the seventh successive year that Dokufest brings to its audience the nominated short films, part of European Film Academy’s short film tour. This year’s edition will present a panoply of young contemporary European film-making competing for the prestigious EFA Short Matters Award.
The array of films is comprised of bold storytelling that provide the viewers with rich-cinematic experiences ranging from films documenting characters that grieve between loss and hope, the stoical preservation of women from Kobani to the southern Spain to see a peculiar race of colorfully painted pigeons.
The eighteenth edition of Dokufest will include all 15 films that were nominated for the prestigious European Film Awards (EFA) Best Short Film in 2018 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.
