Our annual Short Film Competition returns for the fifteenth year, showcasing the work of emerging filmmakers from across the continent and the diaspora. This year's shortlist was selected from over 1,000 entries, and the finalists comprise a broad range of films, each with a unique style, narrative and voice.

Finding by chance a precious historical stone on an archaeological site, two children decide to deliver it to the village authority. They have to face Kalidou, an old man, deeply indebted, who is meant to sell the piece to an antique dealer. A race against the clock through the forest and across the river starts between Kalidou and the two brave children.
