Get them hooked while they’re young – on short films!

We have marked those films and programmes with a U that are especially suitable for a young audience, aged 14 and above. This gives our younger audience a unique opportunity to be introduced to the world of short film. Those films marked with U are part of the Competition Programme too, but they all share a special sensibility that will endear them especially to young audiences.

The Youth Jury will be consist of students from a local school, and we respect these young people for the adult decisions they have to make, as they choose the best youth film from across the competitions.

The Children & Youth film Award

The award is given to the best Children & Youth film in competition. The prize is an OFF diploma and a cheque for €2000.
