The Flemish Audiovisual Fund (VAF) is the beating heart of the Flemish film industry and actively supports young, emerging film talent. To this end, the VAF annually awards "Wildcards" to the most promising graduation projects of bachelor or master students from Flemish film schools. The coveted wildcards are allocated by a specific jury per category and are traditionally awarded at the Leuven Short Film Festival.
