The Winner for BEST SHORT FILM IN COMPETITION AWARD went to:

ABYMEE (The Trouble with Lucie) by Lionel Kaplan. 

The film is from FRANCE and below is the synopsis and basic credits.

Synopsis: Lucie is an actress, but she wanted to be a director. She goes reluctantly to one of many casting calls. After the usual questions, her conversation goes wrong with the casting director, and turns into hostility. Until reality meets fiction. Or maybe it’s the other way round.

Director: Lionel Kaplan | Writer: Lionel Kaplan | Producer: Charles Jacquard | Key Cast: Clémence Faure
