Evaluation A well-established event in the calendar of German short film festivals. Some years ago the press started to call Weiterstadt the "Woodstock of Film Festivals". The festival doesn't charge admission. It is very popular not only among the general audience, but in particular among filmmakers who often return even without an own film in the program.
