Sofía, a little girl of seven, remembers the day she fractured her arm while being chased through the forest; a story full of fantasy that hides a heart rending moment in Sofía´s life. Lariza Around 4 years ago

I visit the big festival each year and present a film that I made in Dresden during the International Kino Gieno Kabaret - a friendly non-competitive fun workshop for film talents: www.kinogieno.de Filmfest Dreasden has a big variety of programs and gives a lot of money awards to industrial films. So you imagine how competitive and greedy the invited film talents become. The arrogance of the elite. If you put a lot of time, effort, and money into your work and make a narrative short to entertain young cinema audiences, this festival might want to screen it. The festival organizes many activities for the participants, so they see can the city, pitch their ideas, party, eat and enjoy the very friendly population in Neustadt (the artist and student residence area).

For me, Dresden is the most interesting Short Film Festival in Germany. Great program, great atmosphere, not so much industry (only shorts!), but great tributes. Philipp Around 4 years ago

Valuable festival in a very beautyful city. Friendly folks. Slightly unrelaxed atmosphere. Lots of cash awards. One of the top German festivals. They have a special program called Kino Gieno. This is the highlight for lovers of ultra-fresh movies created a few days before the screening. Dave Around 6 years ago

A must for shorts filmmakers. Besides Clermont Ferrand and Tampere one of the most important short film festivals in Europe. Luca Around 6 years ago
