In 2019 10 European short film festivals collectively launched the European Short Film Audience Award. Each festival nominates a local film as the winner in their respective national competition and ultimately, all films compete against each other to be awarded Best European Film of the Year. And most importantly: the jury is you! What would happen if Romeo and Juliet did not die young, did we detain the nominees of rare species of our fauna, can we learn the behavioral scenarios, how to come to terms with human syndromes and to take revenge on politicians? All this with a taste of drama and humor in 2 short film selections.
