Deutscher Wettbewerb Kurz


German Competition
Short Documentary and Animated Film

Three young men upside down in a rollercoaster.Making Off (Germania Dreamland). Directed by: Istvan Gyöngyösi (2017)

It’s about art, the world and filmmaking. In Germany, too, and especially here. In 1981 Heiner Müller and Harun Farocki talked about the idea that films from the East are oriented towards the sky while those from the West are oriented towards the earth. But is this East-West compass still suitable for measuring the sparks flying into the world? This Competition brings together German productions by recognised and future masters or promising career changers. Almost exclusively world premieres.
