Short, concise, discursive, stimulating, style-forming. The Kurzfilm Festival Hamburg presents the state of the art of the short form. In three great competitions, the International Competition, the German Competition and the Triple Axel, film makers and artists compete for prizes of a value of 15,500€. In the Laboratory of the Present, curated film programmes introduce questions, conditions and commentaries on contemporary issues which are then discussed in the Forum with guests.
The festival is an exhibition space and a dance floor, it’s both intellect and emotion, and a place for the industry with plenty of space inviting the visitors to stay for a while. Music, art, people, archives and performances turn the festival into a roaring festivity. Come and see – celebrate with us!
