The international Zlín Dog competition presents the best international student works in the categories of animation, feature and documentary films. These student works from all over the world are then evaluated by a three-member expert jury.

About the Zlín Dog competition

In 2013, the organizers of the International Film Festival in Zlín decided to revive the idea of Zlín Dog, which, in the past, had been a successful independent student festival set up by Film School Zlín. Unfortunately, along with the demise of Film School Zlín, the festival disappeared as well. It is for this reason that the Zlín Film Festival has decided to bring back the festival as part of a completely new competitive film section focused on student films.Section is part of main film programme.
