The festival, present for fifteen years in Occitania, proposes to present short fiction and animation films to adults.

Our theme for 2024 will be "The popular party".

The duration (credits included) is thirteen minutes maximum, and will be translated into subtitles in French.

The award is honorary, the festival only seeks to promote the distribution of short films to a wide audience.
