Aesthetica Short Film Competition |  06 02

The Aesthetica Short Film Competition has really started picking up pace now and we have added a number of great screenings to our prize packages, including Kerry Film Festival (Ireland) and Glimmer: Hull Film Festival (UK). We are keen to see filmmakers from Sweden well-represented in the competition and it is a brilliant way for emerging filmmakers to develop their reputation internationally.

I would really appreciate it if you could pass the information below on to your colleagues and mailing lists at SFV-festivalen to remind them of this great opportunity:
