Shorts Animation Competition
Certain subjects emerged from the international competition programme which enabled dividing the films into five categories - Women, Men, Relationships, Places, and Animals. A noteworthy number of films came in from Poland, Belgium, and Switzerland. We can say that Polish animation today is being dominated by young and talented female directors (Marta Pajek, Paulina Ziolkowska, and others), whose films have already gained extensive approval from many different festivals. Polish film has maintained its distinctive deep content, but has also, in addition, developed a certain playfulness which makes them more plausible to the audience.

Belgium’s animation’s strength is its technical realization and storytelling skill.

A Northern reticent narrative carries a significant tension and unpredictable developments.

Switzerland, however, surprises with the amount of absurdity which leads to the fact of it being the birthplace of one of the 20th century’s peculiar art movements - dadaism. Maybe Zurich is a sort of creativity volcano that erupts once in a hundred years and covers whole Europe with its ashes of absurdity. Similarly, many surreal ideas stand out from the films of our Finno-Ugrian relatives Hungarians.

In their well-known quality, “good old” animation countries such as Canada, France, and Great Britain, are of course also represented. The array of problems discussed in these movies is wide and hardly determinable - it varies from routine cigarette-buying to a romantic drama about a man whose head is a plane turbine. There’s more where that all comes from, but let us not lay all the cards on the table at once.

Shorts Live-Action Competition
This year's competition will take audiences on a trip across the globe taking in such exotic location as Peru, Costa Rica and Indonesia. While the world continues to undergo tumultuous times, many of the films here focus on tales of individuals as they try to understand themselves and their place in an increasingly complicated society. The important topics of the times – amongst them sexual identity, immigration and violence – all loom large as filmmakers across the world continue to reflect upon society and show that, even in a time when people seem divided, we have much more in common than we think.

Shorts New Talents Competition: Animation
The face of the animation and nature of the narrative is often determined by technology that is used in the process. In the selection of student films the tendency to use traditional techniques - drawing, dolls, cut out animates - was noticeable. Turning back to “tangible” materials may perhaps be a sign that the makers are getting tired of the virtual era. Could it be because humans wish to recreate adequate contact with oneself and the surrounding world? On the other hand this phenomenon could also be interpreted as the survival of the medium of telling stories through time.

Shorts National Competition
It is perhaps appropriate that, in the year in which Estonia and its Baltic neighbours celebrate their 100th birthday, the National Programme has increased to three cassettes. Indicative of a resurgence of short filmmaking in Estonia, the programme offers a wildly diverse selection of animation, documentary and fiction films. Many films deal with specific aspects of Estonian society as the country continues to assimilate the past as it forges its future. But there are also plenty of films that deal with universal themes of love, loss and life. Estonia may have a small population but the richness and diversity of the films and filmmakers is large.

Shorts No Limits
From the funniest oddball comedies to provocative shorts about sex, this programme further explores the impact and thematic possibilities of the short film medium. Whether it’s a showcase of marginalised voices, a marathon of freak films in the odd hours of the night or a celebration of the very worst of filmmaking, rest assured we won’t hold back.
Shorts Night Cinema
Forget Netflix and join us for a night-cinema-and-chill at the only screening of its kind, where short films are shown from late night to early morning. In a programme that fuels and recharges, you will find Vitamin Pill comedies, newest music videos, short horror stories and a lot of madness. Lights out and slippers on!

Shorts DOC@Shorts
Real life is boring. That’s why cinema exists. Who needs the drudgery of everyday life when we can be whisked away to another world, far away from our mundane existence? But real life is actually more exciting than we can ever imagine.

DOC@Shorts takes us to worlds far from home, yet the problems and joys of their everyday reality are still far from alien. And don´t let the form of storytelling fool you when the animated docs tear a hole in the space-time reality - you are looking straight into our cyborg future reality.
Shorts Panorama
Whenever we hear the word Panorama we tend to think – oh, those are the films that didn’t make it to the competition. We think of something negative – Brexit, global warming, Harvey Weinstein... But little do we know that under that modest name lie the biggest award winning short films and animations including the European Film Academy awards nominees, fresh talents of the Visegrad countries and several other mind opening screenings.

We are also celebrating the many European countries who are turning 100 this year and that includes Estonia. We invite our fellow jubilarians from the Baltic states to join us around the birthday cake. Additionally, into one birthday of a hundred there fits two of 50. Thus, we are excited to celebrate the 50th birthday of the famous full length animation Yellow Submarine by showing it here in Estonia for the second time ever.
ShortsTricky Toons for Kids
Who of us parents haven't left their kids every now and then in the arms of the world’s most consistent babysitter – the TV-set? It seems that only then, when our children are basking in the fluorescent glow of the screen, when their eyes are fixed and their mouths agape - only then can we ever get a moments peace. But sooner or later (at least some of us) will start to feel a sense of guilt – this “babysitter” may be free but they aren't kind or affectionate, and they care not a whit about our child’s well-being. In order to relieve this guilt we suggest you take your child by the hand and venture together towards the cinema. Tricky Toons will offer joy and excitement (and most of all food for thought) for people of all ages.
