Africa in Motion’s annual Short Film Competition has been successfully running for nine consecutive years. This year, the shortlist was selected from over 250 entries, which is a record in AiM’s history. African filmmakers were invited to submit short films of up to 30 minutes, and the final shortlist comprises a diverse and captivating collection of work from across the continent.

The Short Film Competition is part of AiM’s commitment to nurturing young African filmmaking talent. The winner is selected by our jury of acclaimed film practitioners and academics and will be announced immediately after the screenings. The audience will also have the opportunity to vote for their favourite film with the Audience Award winner announced on our website at the end of the festival.

Our thanks go to the African Movie Channel for sponsoring this award.
