Brand-new short films from the AG Kurzfilm online catalog in the Short Film Corner +++ German short film in the German Pavilion at the Marché du Film Cannes +++ AG Kurzfilm offers networking opportunities for local filmmakers

The Festival de Cannes takes place this year from May 17-28, 2022. Three German short film productions were invited to the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs this year: ARIBADA by Simon(e) Jaikiriuma Paetau and Natalia Escobar (DE/CO), STAGING DEATH by Jan Soldat (DE/AT) as well as TREMOR (BEBEN) by Rudolf Fitzgerald Leonard (DE).

In Cannes, AG Kurzfilm, together with German Films, offers young short filmmakers various opportunities to deepen their expertise in marketing strategies for their films. This includes a market tour, networking opportunities and a workshop with experts.

The festival's film market, the Marché du Film, will also feature 31 cutting-edge short films that industry representatives can view via the AG Kurzfilm online catalog. This selection will also be available for online viewing via Cinando in four collections at the Short Film Corner (May 23-27, 2022), the industry platform for short film at Cannes: GERMAN SHORT FILMS - Animation, Documentary, Experimental, Fiction. The films remain accessible there for accredited users for one year. In addition, registered users can also view some of the films via the industry platform T-Port.

Part of the four Collections in the Short Film Corner is also the program Next Generation Short Tiger, the cooperation project of German Films and the German Federal Film Board (FFA), in which AG Kurzfilm is a partner. The program will celebrate its international market premiere on May 24, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. at the Olympia 2 cinema in Cannes in the presence of the film team.

"In recent years, German short films have repeatedly shone with their presence in the official sections of the Cannes International Film Festival. The fact that this year three have been selected for the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs is further confirmation that the work of independent filmmakers can compete on an international level," says Jana Cernik, managing director of AG Kurzfilm.
