International competition for short films, whose common language is dance, movement and broadly defined physical expression. The competition is open to dance films, regardless of styles and genres. To participate in the selection are also welcome documentary and experimental forms, combining dance with different film genres, visual arts and media.
The most prestigious competition at Short Waves Festival for the best productions from all over the world, up to 45 min. The main goal of the competition is to create a diverse programme with a fresh perspective on contemporary cinema by using original film language.
International competition for short films related to architecture, city planning and design understood as arts, as well as their social, cultural or economic aspects. A building, street, park or object cannot be just a part of scenery, the background to the story, but they must act as a key and the main character for the film. All film genres such as fiction films, documentaries, animations, experimental forms may be submitted.
