Founded in 1982, Uppsala International Short Film Festival has since become Sweden’s premier arena for short film and one of the most important short film festivals in Europe. Every year the festival screens more than 300 short films in different sections exploring the diversity and richness of the short film – from new film to retrospective programmes, from fiction film, documentaries and experimental film to animations.
Uppsala International Short Film Festival is recognised by Academy of MotionPicture Arts and Sciences, which means that winning the international or national competition at the festival makes a film eligible for a nomination for an Oscar. The festival is also recognised by the European Film Academy and BAFTA. Screening at the festival qualifies Swedish short films for Guldbagge nominations.
Taking place in the university city of Uppsala at four cinemas located in the city’s classic cinema district, the Uppsala International Short Film Festival is a meeting place for audience and film industry. Buyers, distributors and festival representatives have access to a video library during the festival. The festival offers filmmakers many opportunities to meet their audience, and discussions are held both at the screenings and at special director´s talks. The festival also hosts a number of parties, and the festival pub is open every night.
