International Short Film Week Regensburg
The International Short Film Week Regensburg was founded in 1994 under the name Regensburg Short Film Week by the Arbeitskreis Film e. V. (Film Working Group) as a non-profit festival which only screens short films. At the core of the programme are the various competitions: The International Competition, the German Competition, the Bavarian Competition and the Regional Competition. The supporting programme focuses on thematic and regionally-related topics and the presentation of film schools and other festivals. The Short Film Week sees itself as an intermediary between filmmakers and the public. The festival is a founding board member of the European Coordination of Film Festivals and already undersigned the Code of Ethics in 1996. This membership is a reflection of the Short Film Week's concern to offer short film and short film makers an appropriate and fair platform.
Since March 2013 the festival redefined to International Short Film Week Regensburg.
