The short film

Formal treatment 

The submissions should adhere to some formal, stylistic and production guidelines. The objective: create a collection that forms a single unit and which draws the line between the present and the future of European contemporary creation.

The premises


A short film directed by an artist about themselves and their theatrical vision, as the work will focus on the author. In addition, the film should tell a powerful story for a broad audience.


Filming must take place in one location: a theatre or room in the director’s country of origin (stage, backstage, stalls...) to highlight the relationship between theatre and cinema.


Long take of 15-20 minutes, so taht the story is filmed in real-time. The camera can be moved anywhere while focusing the whole time wherever the author directs us to look.

Filming must always last for five days.
