Founded by the four European film festivals Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen (DE), Go Short Festival in Nijmegen (NL), Short Waves Festival in Poznan (PL) and Vienna Shorts (AT) in 2018, IndieLisboa International Film Festival (PT) and Uppsala Kortfilmfestival (SE) now join the European Short Film Network.

With this, the ESFN is expanding its mission to support and promote European short films in two more countries. This is done not only through the establishment of a new permanent streaming platform, but by means of numerous activities around online, analog and live projects, but equally the development and implementation of strategies and concepts of a sustainable festival organization. All members of the ESFN have thus committed to comply with the Sustainability Code, which the network developed in 2021 and which can be downloaded here.
