European Children’s Film Association
ECFA is the open network organisation for a wide range of professionals in the field of children and youth film as well as film and media education, based upon sharing knowledge and mutual solidarity among its members. The Festival is a member since 2007 and will host the ECFA Board Meeting during the 65th edition in May in Oberhausen. Furthermore, the festival has initiated the ECFA Short Film Award in 2017. Each year, a jury nominates a short film shown in Oberhausen for the short list of the ECFA Award.
