Competitions of 31 FILMFEST DRESDEN are announced

In mid-April, the juries of the 31st Filmfest Dresden (9 to 14 April 2019) will again award the much-coveted "Golden Horsemen" trophies and special prizes for the best national and international short films. This year, the competition section consists of 76 productions from 38 countries, selected by the 10-person selection committee from the more than 2,200 films submitted in total. In addition to the usually high amount of animated films (35), there are also a striking number of hybrid films being screened that position themselves between fictional, documentary and experimental formats.

In the National Competition, the 29 works being screened in 5 programmes offer a kaleidoscope of the latest national short film productions in Germany and captivate by crossing borders both formally and contextually.

47 films from 37 countries are being screened in the International Competition, including those from the frontrunners France (8 (co-)productions) and Great Britain (5), as well as pieces from Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Qatar and Myanmar.

Detailed information on the competitions can be found in our press release.
