GOLDer Short is an award that will be given by SHORTer to the 5 best short films from Emilia Romagna produced in 2020. The members of the network took into account all the shorts produced by authors living in Emilia-Romagna, or coming from Emilia-Romagna, and selected a shortlist of 37 titles. Then five short films were nominated, namely the winners of the GOLDer award.
