German Short Film Association

Welcome to the website of the AG Kurzfilm - German Short Film Association. Here you can find information on our association work, our members and important news from the German short film scene.


We currently revised our website to make it more accessible. Unfortunately, the revisions in the German version were so extensive that we did not get to the English part yet.

We appologise profoundly for this incomplete mess. We are working on it and are trying to sort this out as soon as possible. If you have any question regarding our work in the meantime, you are very welcome to contact our office in Dresden.

"Roll the short film" was the main shout-out throughout the whole country once again. The Short Film Day's theme "Next Door" invoked 284 screenings in cinemas, backyards, living rooms, libraries and corner shops on 21 December.
