When Nova (15) brings her little sister to soccer practice, she exchanges a glance with the new coach, which results in a feeling she can’t seem to put a finger on.


KORT! is an annual collaboration project of the NTR, the Netherlands Film Fund, and NPO Fund, with support of CoBO. The goal is to give new and established directors and screenwriters the opportunity to make high-quality short films with international potential.
