audience award
MIOB in Shorts Award

A total of 15 short films from 20 European countries, nominated by MIOB members, enter the race for the online audience award MIOB in Shorts (endowed with 1,000 euros).

The artistic range here could not be greater: from a love story caught up in the past of the civil war and the question of why deserters are not suitable as heroes, to the reappraisal of a crime that reveals deeply rooted gender injustice, to a failed picnic in togetherness and a ferryman in eastern Poland who does not want to stay alone.
Starting June 1, "Watch & Vote" will launch on the website. For four months, the nominated films will be available online in a biweekly rotation. The winning film of MIOB in Shorts will be awarded at the 31st FilmFestival Cottbus in November 2021.
