The EBROVISION SHORT FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL stems from the concept that music needs to be channeled through other forms of diffusion. This is a different way of enjoying music, its versatility and its unlimited capacity to impact on all aspects of life.

The central theme of each work must be music in all of its ramifications. It can be any type of music or any discipline in which music plays a fundamental role or, barring that, any work in which music is a notable element of the narration.
