Next Generation Short Tiger

The short film program NEXT GENERATION was created by German Films in 1998 to introduce young talents from Germany to international audiences. Selected from film school submissions by an independent jury, the program premieres within the framework of the Cannes Film Festival and is then presented worldwide at Festivals of German Films and is also available for screenings at international film festivals. Since 2011, German Films has cooperated with the German Federal Film Board (FFA) to present the nominees of their annual SHORT TIGER Award as part of the program, now called NEXT GENERATION SHORT TIGER.
