We love short films and think they are a wonderful format for science fiction themes. Each year we receive hundreds of excellent films and it is a challenging task to select for our shorts programme.
We have put together three programmes, each showcasing a cross-section of countries, styles and sensibilities.
We are delighted to announce the winner of this year’s Best Short FIlm Award is BRUTAL RELAX, directed by David Muñoz and Adrián Cardona.
