Short Film Competition

In this oldest competition of the Krakow Film Festival, 37 films, including 13 documentaries, 13 fiction films and 11 animations, will contend for the Golden Dragon, three Silver Dragons and a place on the shortlist for the European Film Award and the Academy Award. As many as five Polish films have been selected for this section. Its diverse palette of colours will include both the most attractive and repelling shades, stories with an incentive as well as a warning. The film producers represent a variety of countries ranging from A as Armenia to U as Ukraine with the exception of R as Russia, just like in the previous year. Documentary animations will be screened along with animated documentaries and very realistic fiction films will be contrasted with pictures of a dystopian nature, which is nevertheless not too distant from the world around us.
