EFA Shorts on Tour 1
EFA Shorts, the European Film Academy’s short film tour, brings shorts to audiences across Europe and beyond. The programme, featuring the European Short Film Candidates for the European Film Awards, is a manifold panorama of young, contemporary European filmmaking.
The creation of the European Film Academy (EFA) was the initiative of a group of Europe’s finest filmmakers brought together on the occasion of the first European Film Awards Ceremony, held in November 1988. The EFA now unites more than 3,600 European film professionals with the common aim of promoting European film culture. Throughout the year, the EFA initiates and participates in a series of activities dealing with film politics as well as economic, artistic and training aspects. The programme includes conferences, seminars and workshops with the common goal of building a bridge between creativity and the industry. These activities culminate in the annual presentation of the European Film Awards.
PÖFF Shorts is one of the festivals that will present a short film candidate as a potential nominee for the European Film Awards, with the festival choosing a candidate for consideration for next EFA Awards from amongst its competition programmes.
