Mission / description The Hamburg International Short Film Festival is rooted in an environment of independent film makers. In 1985 it took place for the first time. Back then, it still operated under its original programmatic title “NoBudget”, which was changed into its current name in 1994. The Hamburg International Short Film Festival is one of the most important and successful short film festivals for both industry and audience alike in the world today.

One of the primary concerns of the Hamburg International Short Film Festival is to accentuate the independence of short films as an art form and to create a special environment for them. Furthermore, it aims at the proliferation of short films. One of the reasons of the festival’s success is that it exists as a part of the Hamburg Short Film Agency (KFA). With its departments archive, distribution, sales and festival, the proliferation of short films can be supported and implemented on many levels.

It's a big festival, but it feels very intimate and grassroots. I felt the films were hit and miss, and there were so many screenings spread out all over the city it was a bit diluted. Most filmmakers ended up just going to the screenings near the festival center so the programs that were far away were not well attended (there were about 10 people in the theater for one of my screenings). Otherwise, the parties are great with afordable drinks and food and lots of socializing. Mixed corwd from all over Europe and a few from further afield. Corrie Around 4 years ago

Hamburg is beautiful. The festival should be on the list of all shorts filmmakers. The festival is connected to the short film agency Hamburg, which is one of the major distributors for shorts. The quality of the screenings varies from theatre to theatre. Anyhow: also the theatres with crappy technics have a great athmosphere, as most of the venues are in old cinemas or alternative spaces. The range of events around the festival could be improved. Luca Around 6 years ago
