The Thalmässinger Kurzfilmtage is an independent shortfilm festival. Since 1995 it has annually shown national and international shortfilms. There are no limitations in genre or format. The movies should not be longer than 15 minutes.
In Thalmässing the audience is on top priority: it appoints the first and the second prize in the competition (1.000 and 750 euros). Two more awardees are elected by the "AV-Medienzentrale Eichstätt" and the festival team (each with 500 euros).
The rural location Thalmässing gives the shortfilmdays its special kind far from a cultural saturated media scene. Personal contact between filmmakers and audience is very important and possible.
No red carpets in Thalmässing but these are compensated by outstanding service, wonderful and cosy atmosphere as well as an enthusiastic and passionated audience!
