I am pleased to announce that I will have a program at FilmFest Dresden
Versatile, international, inspiring - that's the festival programme at FILMFEST DRESDEN. Every year in April, the festival presents the best short films from around the world in Dresden and attracts around 20,000 visitors, including up to 500 accredited guests.
Since its early days, the International and the National Competitions have represented the centrepiece of the festival programme. In their 12 separate screening programmes, roughly 80 films from up to 20 countries world-wide flicker across the silver screen. Each year over 2,000 fiction and animated films from more than 90 countries are submitted for nominations to the competitions. The films submitted may not be more than two years old and no longer than 30 minutes. At the end of each festival the juries pick the best films in the various categories and award a total of eight Golden Horsemen and prize money amounting more than € 67,000.
In addition to the competitions, the festival also has an extensive selection of special programmes focusing on a wide range of subjects and countries, as well as retrospectives and children's films. This also includes a series dedicated to a specific area each year with several film programmes dealing comprehensively with it. Up to 230 films are screened annually in the special programmes.
