ClujShorts 2017 – Official Competition

April 3-9, 2017

Victoria Cinema, Cluj-Napoca

ClujShorts - International Short Film Festival is pleased to announce the 52 films that will compete for the ClujShorts Trophy in the 2017 edition. The full list can be found here.

The last few months were not  easy on the selection team, whose job was to select the final 158 films. The short-films will be screened during the 5th edition of ClujShorts, at Victoria Cinema in Cluj-Napoca.

52 of the selected films met all technical and artistic criteria for the official competition. This year’s jury (Ioan Pop-Curseu, Gabor Xantus and Francis Koos) has the harder task to determine the winners.

As in previous years, the audience will also have the power to choose a winner – The Audience Award. Each audience member will vote his/hers favourite out of the 158 selected.  Also, the local press will also have the task to award their choice.

But ClujShorts is more than a competition: it's an environment full of energy, based on intense discussions and debates. Stay tuned for information regarding all the events the organizers are preparing for you.

The first week of April will be a truly intense one.
