Evaluation Annual meeting place for representatives from national and international short film festivals; one of the most pleasant film festivals to attend. Although it has been around for quite a few years, the festival always manages to surprise its guests with improvements and innovations. The programs offered are invariably both entertaining and varied. Despite the relatively small size of the festival, its strong affiliation with the Bayerischer Rundfunk television station (also involved in other capacities in the promotion of short films) and the proximity to Munich draw a considerable number of industry guests.
