For the 20th time, we present the International Short Film Competition. 14 films from 14 countries are competing for the Jury Prize, endowed with EUR 2,000. The cash prize has been awarded since 2009 by the festival’s Circle of Friends, for which we are very grateful. From fiction features to documentaries and experimental films all the way to animation and music videos, all genres are represented here once again, including numerous premieres. A three-member jury will select the winner of the award for the “best international short film”: Brendon Conway, producer from New York, Alexandre Espigares, Spanish-Luxembourg animation film director, and Karin Hoffinger, Head of Berlinale’s International Relations Department. The winner of the competition will be announced at the awards ceremony for the German Short Film Competition on November 21.
