Established in 2011, the Film Africa Baobab Award for Best Short Film exists to recognise and support filmmaking in Africa and to find new voices emerging from the continent. The Award consists of a £1,000 cash prize and is judged by a panel of filmmakers and industry professionals.
* Short film submissions that have been made by African filmmakers living and working in the continent will automatically be considered for the Award.
* Only filmmakers who have not yet made a feature-length film will be eligible.
* The Baobab Award covers works of fiction only (including experimental). Documentaries will be considered for the main programme but will not be eligible for the Award.
* Only submissions that are 30 minutes or under will be considered.
