SHORT EXPORT - Made in Germany 2021


In its 16th year, SHORT EXPORT 2021 is a new edition of the popular short film program that started off in 2006 as Soirée Allemande. The six current films were selected from 455 German submissions to the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival and illustrate the artistic, stylistic and thematic diversity of German short film making. The 85-minute program is now available and can be booked by Goethe-Institutes and their partner institutions worldwide.
