Daazo.com opens a call for films for the Visegrad Shorts on Tour event supported by The Visegrad Fund, in cooperation with Kino Praha (CZ), OZ Publikum.sk (SK) and Polishorts (PL). Visegrad Shorts on Tour is a travelling short film festival, introducing the most innovative short films from the region, made by young people under 35. The festival aims to help not yet established young filmmakers to showcase their work to a wider audience, get feedback and network. We also aim to form an audience for short films in the region both offline and online, through a dedicated online platform. The filmmakers will be encouraged to form a regional young filmmakers’ association.
The Visegrad Shorts on Tour will be held between 12th and 18th April in Krakow, Prague, Bratislava and Budapest. Six selected directors will be travelling on the tour and present their films in each country. The winners of the Visegrad Short Film Award and Audience Award will be announced during the Closing Ceremony of the festival in Budapest on 17th April. Daazo.com will hand out three awards: the 1000 euro Visegrad Shortfilm Award, the online competition award and the audience choice award.
