Smart Film Awards is an opportunity for the youth of Republic of Albania and Republic of Kosovo, regardless of their ethnicity or gender to showcase their talent in filmmaking by creating and publishing a short film or documentary (by using only smartphones) about the life of young entrepreneurs from both countries.

If you are young, innovative and willing to make a positive change in your community you definitely fit into our scope of people that we are looking for. Smart Film Awards is a unique festival promoting solely the youth artistic aspect and their attitudes toward positive changes in society. Innovation Center Kosovo and CID Tirana are bringing the first addition of #SFA18.

This project is part of “Regional Innovation Alb-Kos” program, supported by the Norwegian Embassy.
