Short Documentary Films Competition

The Short Documentary Films Competition "IMAGE OF THE WORLD - WORLD IN IMAGES".

The aim of the competition is to appreciate documentary films as a creative interpretation of reality. The jury focuses on the visual and aesthetical part of a movie and judges the achievements in the area of film images, awarding best cinematographers among those selected to the competition.

The prestige of the Competition has been recognised by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which has chosen Camerimage Festival as the ACADEMY AWARD® qualifying festival in the Documentary Short Subject category. This means that the winners of the Golden Frog in Short Documentary Films Competition at Camerimage will qualify for consideration in the Documentary Short Subject category of the Annual Academy Awards® without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.
