We announce the list of selected films for the International Short Film Competition. For many years those screenings have enjoyed great interest of our viewers – we do know why. Each competition block is an opportunity to meet new filmmakers who are already deciding on the future of cinema. ISFC are films which, referring to cinematographic traditions, search for original means of expression, tell unconventional stories and consciously break taboos.
From the 2307 films sent from all continents, we selected 34 that touched us or amused us the most; these are films that have been with us for a long time and we want to pass them on.
There are prizes in the competition. The first place is 5000 PLN, the second place is 3000 PLN, the third place is 2000 PLN. MAKonLine Ubezpieczenia is the official sponsor of the statutory prizes in the International Short Film Competition.
