SHORT FILM PROGRAM | LA PREMIERE
Germany (2018), 101 min. DCP Projection
German/Italian/Hebrew/English with English Subtitles
Presented by German Films and the German Federal Film Board (FFA), this beloved annual showcase premieres the most remarkable student shorts – the NEXT GENERATION of German Cinema – together with the best German shorts under 5 minutes – the winners of the FFA’s SHORT TIGER Award.
This year's expert jury includes Student Academy Award®-winner and Academy Award®-nominee Katja Benrath (WATU WOTE – ALL OF US), Daniel Ebner (Artistic Director VIS Vienna Shorts Festival) and Dr. Gregory Theile (Kinopolis/Theile Group), who have selected twelve short films representing Germany’s diversity of forms, genres and skillful filmmaking talent that international audiences have come to expect from German shorts.
These deeply personal and universal stories confirm the notion that short film is an independent art form deserving of the big screen and the awareness of audiences worldwide.

Rebecca Zehr (Documentary, 2018, 9 min, 14 sec.)
Is it possible to regain one’s natural appearance using an artificial object? Can a face be completed by the use of an inanimate object – an eye that does not blink or a nose that cannot be wrinkled?
