Information and registration procedure


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.
