European Award Winners

In this programme, 15 EFA winners from European festivals are presented, all nominated for the European Film Awards 2017. The European Film Academy (EFA) is the organizer of this short film tour, with the intention of giving as big an audience as possible the opportunity to enjoy this panorama of young, contemporary European filmmaking.

Ultimately, the Spanish film TIMECODE drew the longest straw and was awarded the EFA Short Film Grand Prix – this film also won the Audience Award at Minimalen 2017. The films are presented in three parts on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
