The Competition

séance de projection, le public

Founded in 2003, Concours de Courts is an international cultural event that puts the spotlight on a film format that does not always receive the same attention as feature length movies. This is an event dedicated to short films.

More than a simple contest, this event offers cinema enthusiasts, students and a large public the opportunity to discover the international short films in competition through several film screenings in the city of Toulouse. Not least, it is also the annual occasion for film professionals and enthusiasts to exchange and share their interest for the seventh art.
