Africa in Motion’s annual Short Film Competition has been successfully running for nine years, with more than 200 entries submitted this year. The Documentary Film Competition was launched for the first time in the 2015 edition of the festival. Filmmakers of African nationality were invited to submit short films of no longer than 30 minutes and documentaries of 30 minutes or more, completed after 2014. Both competitions aim at supporting young and emerging filmmakers from Africa.

For each competition, the winner will be selected by a jury of high profile international film practitioners and announced immediately after the screenings, and will receive a prize money of £500 (sponsored by African Movie Channel and the Scottish Documentary Institute). An Audience Choice Award will also be attributed for each competition and will be announced at the end of the festival.
