Three German short film (co-)productions are celebrating their big appearance at the Festival de Cannes (May 14-25, 2024): NUESTRA SOMBRA (world premiere) by Agustina Sánchez Gavier (Academy of Media Arts Cologne) and IMMACULATA (world premiere) by Kim Lêa Sakkal (filmfaust) have been invited to the Quinzaine des Cinéastes. The French-German VR short film EMPEROR by Marion Burger and Ilan J. Cohen (Atlas V, Reynard films, France Télévisions) will also be screened in the Sélection Immersive (non-competitive works).

The festival's film market, the Marché du Film, will also present 30 brand-new short films that industry representatives can view via the AG Kurzfilm online catalog. 13 films from this selection, which have already screened successfully at international film festivals such as the Berlinale, Rotterdam or Clermont-Ferrand, will also be available for online viewing under the title "Festival Highlight 2024" in the Short Film Corner (May 19-22, 2024), the festival platform for short film. They will remain accessible to accredited users for one year. Registered users can also view some of the films via the industry platform T-Port.

The Next Generation Short Tiger program, the cooperation project between German Films and the German Federal Film Board (FFA), in which AG Kurzfilm is a partner, can also be viewed online in the Short Film Corner. Together with German Films, AG Kurzfilm also offers young local short film makers various opportunities to deepen their knowledge of marketing and networking strategies for their films. The specialist offer is rounded off by a market tour, pitch training and a workshop with experts.
