Evaluation Comprehensive showcase of German short films, with an addition of international programs and specials out of competition. Set in one of the quaintest and most attractive German towns, and organized by a dedicated team of volunteers, this is the short film festival with the longest tradition in Bavaria. Good audience responses and sold-out theaters.
