The EFA Short Film Programme is organised by the European Film Academy in co-operation with a series of film festivals throughout Europe. At each of these festivals, an independent jury presents one of the European short films in competition with a nomination in the short film category of the European Film Awards.  

The next - and final - nomination for 2018 will be presented in co-operation with the Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival Bristol.

When the annual cycle is completed, the nominees will be presented to the more than 3,500 members of the European Film Academy and it is they who will elect the overall winner: the European Short Film 2018 which will be presented at the 31st European Film Awards Ceremony on 15 December in Seville.
