NATIONAL AWARDS 2016

National awards are presented in PLAYGROUND cities to films from their respective countries.  
See the National Juries.

 

The national competitions are a staple of shnit’s program and show the best new works our various PLAYGROUNDS have to offer. It is precisely the novelty of these talents that goes hand in hand with the will to explore and tell the tale. Fresh new short films provide food for thought and are able to move the audience profoundly, while freedom from financial constraints gives free rein to creativity. Therefore, it is our agenda to promote national filmmaking and give it the opportunity to go beyond its borders. National competitions also illustrate technical developments of cinema in different countries with a more current and pragmatic approach. This is why shnit International Shortfilmfestival features eight national competitions.

To honor the contributions of the PLAYGROUNDS, the national juries will award each nation’s best short film of 2016. This year we proudly present the following national competitions:
