In 2000 was launched in Nice, France, "Un Festival c’est trop court!" - the European Short Film Festival of Nice. It has become over the years a central meeting point for young European creation in the field of short films. The festival has also been able to anchor itself in the cultural landscape as a flagship event of the cinema season on the Côte d'Azur.
Every year, it brings together the best of emerging short film authors through many competition programs.
In 2017, the festival welcome more than 10,000 spectators and presented about 170 singular, innovative, rare or unpublished films from all over Europe.
In 2018 for its 18th edition, the festival director Laurent Tremeau decided to open his event to dance films and asked Eric Oberdorff, choreographer and director of Compagnie Humaine, to be the curator of this dance films' selection called Nice Dance Film.
