Founded in 1982, Uppsala International Short Film Festival has since become Sweden’s premier arena for short film and one of the most important short film festivals in Europe. Every year the festival screens more than 300 short films in different sections exploring the diversity and richness of the short film – from new film to retrospective programmes, from fiction film, documentaries and experimental film to animations. The 38th Uppsala International Short Film Festival takes place during the 21-27 October 2019. Taking place in the university city of Uppsala at four cinemas located in the city’s classic cinema district, the Uppsala International Short Film Festival festival offers filmmakers many opportunities to meet their audience, and discussions are held both at the screenings and at special director´s talks. The festival also hosts a number of parties, and the festival pub is open every night.
