Short of the Year

Each year, the Short Film Conference celebrates the best short film, awarding it with the title Short Of The Year. Official Members of the Short Film Conference get to vote in two rounds (one vote per festival/organization counts).

The short films that end up with the most votes during the first round, go on to the shortlist and get nominated. Finally, each member gets to cast one  vote to elect the winner of the award.

This year’s seven nominated short films are:
