The Festival de Cannes will take place this year from May 16-27, 2023. The competition for university films, La Cinef, features UHRMENSCHEN by Hao Yu, made at Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF Film University. Two German short film productions were invited to the Quinzaine des Cinéastes this year: IL COMPLEANNO DI ENRICO by Francesco Sossai (German Film and Television Academy Berlin) and THE RED SEA MAKES ME WANNA CRY by Faris Alrjoob (Academy of Media Arts Cologne).

The festival's film market, the Marché du Film, will also feature 33 cutting-edge short films that industry representatives can view via AG Kurzfilm's online catalog. Nine films from this selection will also be available for online viewing at the Short Film Corner (May 21-24, 2023), the industry platform for short film at Cannes. They will remain accessible there for accredited users for one year. In addition, registered users can also view some of the films via the T-Port platform.

Together with German Films, AG Kurzfilm also offers young short film makers on location various opportunities to deepen their expertise in marketing strategies for their films. This includes a market tour, pitch training, networking opportunities and a workshop with experts.
