Short Film Catalog "German Short Films"

As film markets are increasingly taking place digitally or hybrid, we seized the opportunity to implement a new catalog concept, which allows the selection to be even more up-to-date and accessible only online. Starting in 2022, the catalog selection will be updated three times a year: At the beginning of the year, in spring and in the fall. The selection can be accessed in our established database-based online catalog, in which these and numerous films from past years can be viewed after prior registration via the online preview.

The Short Film Catalog is an established information medium for international film institutions, festivals, multipliers and international cultural institutes, distribution and sales companies, buyers and television stations. It has been published annually since 2004 and presents a selection of 100 of the most interesting current German short films as well as an extensive service section with an index and important contact addresses for the German short film industry. The compilation presents the rich German short film production and introduces productions from the independent scene as well as works by film students. The short film catalog is presented on film markets, festivals and other important industry events. Internationally, the presentation of the first selection of the year takes place at the film market of the short film festival in Clermont-Ferrand, the German premiere presentation takes place at the EFM of the Berlinale. 

From 2006 to 2020, a preview compilation for festivals and curators with some of the films selected by the catalog jury had been published to accompany the catalog. From 2010 to 2020, there had also been a preview compilation especially with short films for children and young people. These can now be found in the film search by setting the tick in the "suitable for children and young people" checkbox.
