Baobab Award for Best Short Film

Film Africa has partnered with the National Film & Television School on the Baobab Award for Best Short Film. Students on the recently created MA in Film Studies, Programming & Curation watched over 450 submitted shorts and provided the festival programme committee with a shortlist of 100, from which eight were selected.

Established in 2011, the Baobab Award exists to recognise and support new filmmaking voices emerging from across Africa and the African diaspora. Sponsored by curated content network What We See, the Award consists of a £1,500 cash prize.

One of the eight shortlisted films for the 2017 Baobab Award is the Ethiopian/Israeli film Transitions [መሸጋገሪያ]

Year: 2016
Running time: 15 mins
