The 2015 Stockholm International Film Festival released the list of short films that are selected for this year’s Short Film Competition, competing for the Aluminium Horse award. The 26th Stockholm International Film Festival runs November 11 to 22, 2015
The line up of this year’s Short Film Competition includes 18 short films from 14 countries, of which four have their world premiere at Stockholm Film Festival. The short films are competing for the Aluminium Horse. In 2014 the Aluminium Horse went to Una Gunjak for The Chicken (2014).
“We are looking forward to present this year’s titles in Short Film Competition, delivering an array of intriguing topics with categories ranging from documentaries to comedy and drama. The award aims to encourage directors in the beginning of their careers, who every year surprise us with their creativeness and originality,” says Git Scheynius, the festival director of Stockholm International Film Festival.
