Versatile, international, inspiring

...that's the festival programme at FILMFEST DRESDEN. Every year in April, the festival presents the best short films from around the world in Dresden and attracts more than 20,000 visitors, including around 500 accredited guests.

Since 1989, our festival has understood itself as a forum for political discourse and intercultural exchange. Even outside the festival period, we are actively involved in a wide range of projects related to short film, promoting democracy, tolerance, inclusion and gender justice.
