- Opening event lIebe - trIebe - seItenhIebe
Six excellent shorts are opening our festival. They’re not just excellent because
they’re simply good, but because the’ve
been awarded with the most important
shortfilm-award which is distributed in
Germany: the “Deutsche Kurzfilmpreis”.
A few years ago, a national cinematournee has been added to this awardshow with the intention of integrating nominated and awarded shorts
into the regular cinema-program. This very successful idea offers the
opportunity to free the shortfilm from its shady existence and so make it
more accessible for the general public.
“Liebe-Triebe-Seitenhiebe” contains six very different shorts which in a
wonderful way are mirroring the big spectrum of the genre of shortfilms.
So, these six are going to be a promising beginning!
