A couple on the roads of Provence. Nils is driving Flora to his parents for the first time when they get ambushed. Whilst she’s made prisoner, he flees. During a night in the pinewood, she has to face her doubts.

BLUE FEAR was selected by the festival's international jury, comprised of Premysl Martinek (artistic director, IFF Febiofest Bratislava, Slovakia), Valentina Piva (programmer, Milano Film Festival, (Italy) and Katharina Stumm (programme manager, Connecting Cottbus, Germany).

The film is now a candidate for a nomination in the category 'European Short Film' at the European Film Award 2021.

The EFA Short Film Programme is organised by the European Film Academy and EFA Productions 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 candidacy in the short film category of the European Film Awards.

This is the sixth short film candidate for 2021. When the annual cycle is completed, the participating festivals will nominate five short films from this list. Afterwards, the 3,800 EFA Members – film professionals from all over Europe – will vote for the overall winner that will be presented at the 34th European Film Awards Ceremony.
