About

 In the course of more than five decades, the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen has become one of the world’s most respected film events – a place where filmmakers and artists ranging from Roman Polanski to Cate Shortland, from George Lucas to Pipilotti Rist have presented their first films.

 The International Short Film Festival Oberhausen has been as a catalyst and a showcase for contemporary developments, a forum for what are often heated discussions, a discoverer of new trends and talent, and not least as one of the most important short film institutions anywhere in the world. Some 7,000 films submitted on average per year, around 500 films shown in the festival programmes and over 1,100 accredited industry professionals are proof enough.

 From 1 to 4 May 2021, the 67th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen will present the online competitions on the Internet, and from 5 to 10 May 2021, the festival will take place on site, in accordance with the then current Corona restrictions.

 

Telefilm Canada recognizes a selection in the Festival for application to its International Festival participation Program.
