The Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale), along with Cannes and Venice, counts as one of the oldest and most important competitive festivals in the world. The Berlinale is also a public festival selling almost 300,000 tickets to the city’s cinephiles.

Since 1955, the Berlinale has awarded a Golden and Silver Bear to the Best Short Film. Since 2003, short films have had their own international jury and since 2006 their own section. With the introduction of a dedicated section, the festival has expressed its commitment to raising the profile of short films.
