Ethnocineca Students Shorts Award (ESSA)
Young talents – Big cinema! The ethnocineca Students Shorts Award (ESSA) attends to the multifaceted inspiration of young documentary filmmaking. The competition offers young international talent a public platform to present and discuss their works and invites the audience to discover new and innovative varieties of documentary film. In this competition, traditionally the audience would decide the winner, but this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic a jury will make the decision.
