European Short Film Day 2018 - English subtitled

The short film is exciting, versatile and has something for everyone. You can see a lot of upcoming talent at work in a short film. Still, the lesser known brother of the feature film gets too little attention. That's why the spotlights are put on the short film on the shortest day of the year.
