INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

The International Competition functions as seismograph for societally relevant questions and therefore allows brief glimpses into the future. It presents a selection of films in composed programmes which reflect contemporary questions and aesthetics in the mirror of the present. These films were produced outside the framework of commercial exploitation strategies, thus offering an unobstructed look at questions and relationships, conditions and moments. Documentary miniatures meet radically experimental films which in turn meet films which overtake Aristotle on the left with their narrative strategies. The short form shatters all boundaries and conventions. Young new talents encounter well known artists. Contemporary cinema at eye level.
