The festival is perfectly integrated into the cultural fabric of the city, offering its audience excellent international short documentaries, animated films, and dramas.

In turn, the Polish-Lebanese production “Son of the Streets” by Mohammed Almughanni was named the best short documentary. A special mention also went to Gosia Juszczak's documentary “Stolen Fish”.
