International Student Competition 2023
46th Drama International Short Film Festival
For the 4th year in a row, the Student International Competition programme of the 46th Drama International Short Film Festival, consists of thrilling, important films! This year, we focus on animals: lizards, cows, fish, urchins and their relationship with us, humans. Lots of love, but also violence. In addition, we will enjoy films about the much-discussed diversity and about human sexuality in all its aspects. Some of the films deal with themes that are classical in a way, talking about political issues or others about human relations and their difficulty. Regardless of their thematic, my great joy comes from the fact that we found films that approach their subject in an authentic, modern and artistically bold way. We met young filmmakers, who are worthy representatives of their time and generation and who, I hope, will continue to tell cinematic stories with the same sensitivity and interest.
