This year, the Street Film Festival presents the online movie theatre KION, which helped compile the main competition programme from the nine best short films of the season. They also contributed to the programme by assembling four collections to be shown on other days of the festival. At the end of the competition, all the programme films will be available at the KION online movie theatre.
