Best friends Cas and Naomi are graduating from high school and spend every day together. They have been best friends for years, and feel totally safe with each other. But when their future plans take them in different directions, their relationship wobbles.

MARLON BRANDO was chosen by the festival's international jury comprised of festival programmer Maarten Alexander (Belgium) and directors Wendy Pillonel (Switzerland) and Barnabas Toth (Hungary/France).

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 eighth 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.
