Hamburg ShortFilmFestival

International Short Film Festival Hamburg

The Festival

It all started in 1985 under the title No Budget Festival as a small festival that mainly screened super 8 films. Over the years it grew bigger and bigger and is nowadays one of the most important short film festivals in Europe that lures every year up to nearly 15 000 spectators into the word of short film. The festival is being held by the Short Film Agency Hamburg.
