What is the Best of Festival ?

Within the walls of the Eden Théatre – the oldest movie theatre in the world – the Best of Festival offers a unique program: a selection of over 50 short films awarded that year in the most prestigious competitions dedicated to short films.
Winners of the Academy Awards, Cannes, Sundance, Venice, Berlin, Clermont-Ferrand and a total of 60 festivals worldwide will be reunited in one place.

Spectators can marvel at the sight of all these great laureates united in one space-time, subtitled both in English and French. It is a unique occasion to meet young and talented filmmakers, and – who’s to say – the great directors of tomorrow.
A professional jury awards the “Golden sun”, “Silver sand” and “Bronze sea” awards to the best short films, in a laid-back and professional atmosphere.
Since its creation the Best of International Short Films Festival has been a guarantee of quality and creativity thanks to the diversity of its selection, from movies of all countries to movies of all genres.
