Competition for Belgian Student Shorts

Since 2010 this prize has been awarded to selected students attending official film schools in Flanders, Brussels and Wallonia. The prize has a value of €5.000. A professional jury will judge the Belgian Student Short Competition, which usually consists of five to fifteen shorts. But the audience can choose their favorite film as well! Through this competition, Film Fest Gent emphasises the importance of the short film as an idiosyncratic medium and hopes to give young, talented filmmakers the prospect of a great career.
