The magic of short film lies in its capacity to act as a sort of 'cinematographic laboratory': it provides filmmakers with the perfect opportunity to experiment with film, narrative and aesthetics regardless of their budgets. At the Hamburg International Short Film Festival international producers and audiences come together to marvel at the latest releases in the world of short film. Around 14,000 visitors attend annually to view the more than 400 films that compete in categories such as the International and German competitions, the experimental 'Deframed' competition and the Three Minute Quickie competition.
Simultaneously, the Mo&Friese Children’s Short Film Festival screens international short films for children and youth.
