Last year, the Austrian Consulate Shanghai and the Austrian Center Shanghai hosted the Short Film Night for the first time. Due to the positive feedback, the film night was held on 29 March for the second time at the Austrian Center Shanghai. Shown were three short films, which were awarded the prizes of the Austrian Film Academy: "Nelly", "Matthias" and "Wannabe". Also featured was the Chinese short film "A Gentle Night", which won the Golden Palm for Short Film at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
