The Short Films Selections at the 69th Festival de Cannes

 Short Film News (SFN)- The announcement of the 2016 Official Selection will begin with the short films Competition and the Cinéfondation Selection, in the run-up to the press conference for the 69th Festival de Cannes, to be held on Thursday 14th April.

 

Following their deliberations, the Cinéfondation and Short Films Jury, presided by Naomi Kawase, will decide on the best films both from the Short Films Competition and the Cinéfondation.

 

This year, the selection committee received 5,008 short films – 458 more than in 2015.
The 2016 Short Films Competition comprises ten films, mostly from Europe and Latin America, with one representative from Asia and one from Africa.


These films are all in the running for the 2016 Short Film Palme d’or, to be awarded by Naomi Kawase, President of the Jury, at the official award ceremony of the 69th Festival de Cannes on 22th May.

To mark its 19th year, the Cinéfondation Selection has chosen 18 films (14 works of fiction and 4 animations), from among the 2,300 works submitted this year by film schools from all over the world. Fifteen countries from three continents are represented.

Seven of the films selected come from schools taking part for the first time, and it is also the first time that a film school from Bosnia and Herzegovina and one from Venezuela have seen one of their films reach the selection stage. More than half of this edition's movies are directed by women, with 10 out of the 18 films selected.

 

The three Cinéfondation prizes will be awarded at a ceremony preceding the screening of the prize-winning films on Friday 20th May in the Buñuel Theatre.
