Brno, 30 Sep (BD) – The 64th edition of the BRNO16 International Short Film Festival will be taking place at Kino Art from 18-22 October.

The competition section reflects current work in the field of short film. All the movies selected for the competition were produced within the past three years and are under 30 minutes long. According to Milan Šimánek, director of BRNO16, the best of these works will be awarded based on the verdicts of an international jury, a students jury, and the audience of the festival.

Other short films will be shown in a separate program, including Oscar-winning shorts, silent films accompanied by live music, and films for children. To support local talent, the Czechoslovak16 section will be dedicated to Czech and Slovak film-makers.

The festival will also include discussions with guests and film-makers. Professionals can attend the industry programme with the Brno Film Office, South Moravian Film Foundation, and the MIDPOINT Institute, amongst others.
