Short Matters is the European Film Academy’s short film tour which brings the nominated short films to audiences across Europe – and beyond.

The programme featuring the European Short Film Nominees 2017 is a manifold panorama of young contemporary European filmmaking. This year’s programme is composed of productions/co-productions from Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Turkey & UK.

The members of the European Film Academy – more than 3,000 European film professionals − selected the Spanish film ‘Timecode’ by Juanjo Giménez as the overall winner, which was presented at the 30th European Film Awards Ceremony in Berlin in December 2017.

The short film programme is organised in co-operation with a series of film festivals throughout Europe. At each of these festivals, an independent jury presents one of the short films in competition with a nomination in the European Film Awards’ short film category.
