Founded in 2005, the short films in all their facets have found a home in Cologne. Every year in November current trends of the medium are highlighted – documentary, fictional, animated and everything in between, in regional, national and international programs. There are no limits to the genres. On the contrary.
Since 2012 the New Aesthetic section has been introduced, dedicated to hybrid forms and narratives. The VR program expands the concept of film in a separate exhibition. And with the Spotlight, the work of an artist is given a space that allows for more in-depth exploration. Guest programs and collaborations additionally broaden the horizon and allow for new perspectives.
