With filmakers from the four corners of the world, the Short Film of the Year Awards have now reached the international status, and is seen as the reference for film producers around the world, and TV broadcasters alike.

With an incredible level of quality, it was really hard for the judges and voters alike to decide on who will win. Judges and voters could not separate the top two movies and we ended up with a tie for the first time ever!
