‘Shortcut – Small Stories, Big Issues’ is a film education project focused on European short films. The project was developed by four European organisations from Poland, Northern Ireland, Czech Republic and Portugal with the support of the European Union Creative Europe Media Programme.

The films have been selected thematically to strengthen the competences today’s youth are faced with in their modern world. The library of curated European short films and animations explore citizenship and personal development themes. The support material for teachers will be a film educational toolkit on an accessible VOD platform available for registered Educational Institutions.

The database of films, materials and education activities are available on the national websites for each of the partner countries through ‘Shortcut – Small Stories, Big Issues’.

This website has been produced with the financial support of the European Union. Its content is the sole responsibility of the Shortcut project Consortium and can in no way be taken to reflect the position of the European Union.
