The Short Film Festival Berlin (Kurzfilmfestival) is the second most significant international film festival in Berlin after the Berlinale and also the second oldest short film festival in Germany. For seven days in November each year, it presents short and medium length films from all over the world in selected cinemas in Berlin.
More than 7,000 films with a maximum running time of 20 minutes are submitted each year from filmmakers in more than a hundred countries. Of these, approximately 500 films are selected by the festival team and arranged into different thematic programmes in which they then compete.
The Short Film Festival competition includes several categories, among them International Competition, German, Documentary, and Green Film. Beyond that there are also sections devoted to other formats such as music videos, experimental films, and retrospectives.
