MIDPOINT Shorts 2020 - 2021

With the support of
MKCR Czech Film Fund
In partnership with
When East Meets West
In collaboration with
Cannes Short Film Corner


Program dedicated to short fiction films in development. It is open to projects of professional or graduation short films coming mainly, but not exclusively, from Central and Eastern Europe and the wider Mediterranean area.

MIDPOINT Shorts selects teams of writers, directors and producers of short film projects. 

The selected projects go through a preparatory workshop followed by two regular workshops during which the participants focus on script and project development while also being able to gain deeper knowledge about other aspects of the industry. 

The whole program concludes with the project showcase within the prestigious When East Meets West Co-production Forum.

The program schedule and the form of the organization inevitably depend on the development of the coronavirus pandemic situation.
