36th International Short Film Festival


The IKFF Hamburg is rooted in the milieu of independent filmmaking. Today, the IKFF Hamburg is one of the most important and successful short film festivals for the world’s industry and public.

It is one of IKFF Hamburg's main concerns to emphasize the independence of the short film as an art form and to create a special space for it. Another aim is to promote the general dissemination of short films. This can be followed successfully because the festival is part of the KurzFilmAgentur Hamburg e. V. (KFA) is.

With the archive, distribution, distribution and festival departments under its roof, the distribution of the short film can be supported and realized on different levels.

By presenting an enormous range of international short film productions, the festival offers its visitors a diverse forum and serves as a popular meeting place for short film makers from Germany and abroad. The festival's diversity derives on the one hand from the numerous film entries for the various competitions and on the other hand from the various carefully curated special programmes.

Further information on the programme of the 36th International Short Film Festival 2021 will be available here soon.

The annual national and international competitions do not differentiate according to individual genres, but all cinematic forms are invited to take part in the categories International Competition, NoBudget, German Competition and "Flotter Dreier".

In addition to the competitions, various special programmes will be presented, which provide a closer look at selected topics. They range from societal observations to work shows of individual filmmakers or film groups to country or regional focal points. In addition, technical, aesthetic or formal developments are scrutinized at irregular intervals.

In addition to film programmes, the festival also organises seminars, workshops and information events that offer filmmakers the opportunity to gain useful insights into film production.
