European Short Film Festival of Bordeaux

Logo of European Short Film Festival of Bordeaux

Date and location
The 22nd session of the European Short Film Festival of Bordeaux will take place on March the 26th and 27th 2020 at the UGC CinéCité cinema in Bordeaux, in partnership with this very cinema.

Goals
The European Short Film Festival of Bordeaux aims at promoting the short film format to the Région Aquitaine's audience. It eases the access to cinema for all generations, young people and elderly included. It helps directors coming from whole Europe to be discovered, and is a good way to meet and appreciate cultural differences. This is somehow a springboard amidst the film industry thanks to the jury influence, no matter if the participants are mere enthusiasts or professionals.
