Competition for Belgian Student Shorts

The Competition for Best Belgian Student Short Film is open exclusively to all students from the recognised Flemish, Walloon and Brussels film schools. The International Short Film Jury rewards the best entry with the Prize for the Best Belgian Student Short Film, worth € 5,000. This prize is awarded by Amplo, HR partner for the creative sector.

And... you can also name a winner! You can help decide who will win the THE PACK Audience Award and thus a post-production budget of € 6,500.

International Short Film Competition

Short films are more than a stepping stone to a feature film; they are a genre of their own, and one that is too often underexposed. Film Fest Gent wants to put international short film talent in the spotlight. The International Short Film Competition houses three selections with the best that short films have to offer. The Short Film Jury presents the Award for Best International Short worth €5,000.
