International Shorts Award (ISA)
The International Shorts Award (ISA) pays well-deserved attention to the genre of short films within the festival program. Nominated documentaries stand out due to their range of subjects and show the dynamics and expressive possibilities of the short film format. In this competition, traditionally the audience would decide on the winner, bu this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic a jury will make the decision.
