Every year twenty European festivals each nominate a short film to send to the European Film Academy awards. GSFF has selected several of those nominees for a showcase of the most critically acclaimed contemporary European shorts.

A Ukrainian weightlifter sheds all extraneous emotional ties to focus on an impending competition. A young woman struggles with anorexia. A Palestinian labourer, turned back at the border, looks for an alternative way to put food on the table. And an actress hurries to an audition whilst solving a childcare crisis, all the time oblivious to her surroundings.


Tragic news makes a professional weightlifter more than just a mechanical bundle of muscles.


A woman is locked in her home with an egg, which she is both attracted to and scared of.


A Palestinian day labourer is denied entry into Israel for work one day.
