In Short Europe Film Festival

In Short, Europe: ESCAPE

28 Oct – 4 Nov 2020

Online Short Film Festival




In Short Europe, an initiative of EUNIC London, was first organised on Brexit day as a celebration of European cinema and our shared values and culture with the UK. Its second edition, embraces the theme of ESCAPE, offering our audience an online collection of short films that negotiate the concept through their form, themes and style. Through a variety of genres and styles, fifteen shorts from all over Europe feature characters and images that appear and disappear, following physical or mental journeys, reaching points of arrival or points of departure, always on the move, seeking an escape that may or may not come.


The festival's Hungarian entry, multi-award winning Last Call (2018) directed by Hajni Kiss, is giving us a glance into Anikó Kárpáti's last day in Budapest. Follow her journey, a mad dash through the city in search for a better life abroad while the past keeps turning up demanding the hardest task of all, closure...


Watch the film here and join the panel discussion on fiction and narrative films with Hajni Kis and fellow European directors on 4th November - register to attend here.
