“Early Bird” is a festival for students of Film Arts who wish to present their projects to colleagues and a broader audience and to share their knowledge and doubts challenging the world. The festival gives the audience an opportunity to meet closely with art, ideology and aestetics of young filmmakers. Furthermore in a unique way it is a place for exchange of experience and ideas while gives the participating students and teachers opportunities for additional training through master classes and workshops. Their goal is to create an unique forum for international students in the field of short films.
