European Film Festival of Lille


Years running: 38 (since 1984)

European Film Festival of Lille

European Short Film Festival in Lille.


It's one of the most important short film festival in France. It hosts public concerts, exhibitions, tents for associations and a black box for attendees to watch short films. This increase is a major step for the Festival, proof of its rising national and European prominence (60% of the films were received from outside France).

The official selection will consist of about 40 short films in official competition and about 30 others short films in thematic competition, all fairly screened during the festival.


The prizes are awarded by a professional jury, a young jury, the audience. Approximately 10 prizes are awarded. These prizes are granted in technical loans or in cash by the festival’s partners and are subject to the conditions specified only by the suppliers.
