The section of short films will introduce 31 films from 17 countries divided into six thematic blocks. Six thematic blocks will bring relationship comedies, dramas, and also erotic fantasies. The section, judged by an international student jury, is very popular with the viewers every year.
While the lesbian block The Woman of My Dreams will show how intoxicating yet demanding fateful love can be, the gay block No Shamewill emphasize how crucial it is not to give up and to fight for your feelings. Similarly, the Be Yourself! block illustrates the importance of following your dreams and never surrendering, even when those around tell you otherwise.
The protagonists of the films included in the Crossroads of Fate block experience moments and encounters that will irreversibly change their respective futures. On the other hand, the Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Parenthood but Were Afraid to Ask block will introduce us to different families that, although from different parts of the world, face similar problems. Last but not least, the Step into the Unknown block will introduce a selection of imaginative films centred around trans topics.
