European Short Awards aims to present the selection films to a wide audience. The selection will also include films from other continents, because our goal is also to present films from different cultures of the world. After the previous editions, which were held in Madrid, Prague and Brno, the festival decided to move to London due to higher audience participation and more interesting partners. The festival will be held on July 31 - August 1, 2025 in the Close Up Cinema London.
