The 39th Uppsala Short Film Festival takes place 19-25 October 2020. During the year, the festival arranges several screenings and events. In September, we will be a part of this years digital Culture Night in Uppsala with a short film programme online.
Statement concerning COVID-19:
The 39th Uppsala Short Film Festival is scheduled to take place 19th – 25th October 2020. The Uppsala team is currently working towards delivering the full festival programme of screenings and events during these dates.
Due to the uncertainty surrounding the development of COVID-19, there is of course a risk that large gatherings will be inadvisable also in October. For everyone’s well-being, we are carefully monitoring the developments and will follow official guidelines and recommendations. Consequently, we are also looking into alternative ways in which we can create opportunities for films and filmmakers to meet the festival audience and industry. We sincerely hope to be able to welcome you to a full-sized festival in October, but at the very least, the three competitive sections will be completed and the selected films screened for audience and industry, in the cinema or virtually.
Our warmest thanks to all of the filmmakers, partners and colleagues for their continued support. We will keep you updated as plans evolve.
