19th cellu l'art Short Film Festival Jena

Every April, cellu l’art Short Film Festival presents international short films in Jena, Central Germany. This young and vibrant university city comes alive with screenings and events revolving around shorts from all genres: fiction, animation, documentary and experimental. Films from all over the world compete in the international competition while an annual country focus programme allows the viewers to get to know the (short film) culture of a specific country. In 2017, cellu l’art presented stories from Iran, delving into propaganda, underground cinema and official fiction films. The programme for the upcoming edition focuses on Scotland. Special interests can be satisfied in programmes for horror films, queer films and more.

cellu l’art started out as a project by media science students in 1999 and has since grown rapidly and dynamically, becoming more diverse and more international while still retaining a loveable, friendly ambience. Traditionally, the festival begins with an open air event with live music and short films. The award ceremony on Saturday has become the highlight of the festival week. The handing out of the awards by the professional jury and the youth jury is accompanied by the screening of the awarded films.

Volksbad (a former public bath house turned cultural venue) has been the main spot of the festival for a few years now and makes for a special atmosphere for cinematic adventures.
