International Short Film Festival Oberhausen 

Oberhausen, Germany / May 3-8, 2018 / kurzfilmtage.de/en

Oberhausen is more of a creative laboratory than a market, and that’s by design. This German shorts central aims to bring the scattered international experimental film scene together, from New Zealand, to Sweden, to China, and everywhere in between. That doesn’t detract from the fest’s competitive nature, as approximately 42,000 euros in cash prizes are bestowed upon award-winners. But moviemakers not in the “big chair” be warned—Oberhausen’s decision to only award directors does favor the exclusivity of auteur status.

    Really? No gay film festivals. Try again.

      “Iris Prize Film Festival’s namesake is indeed its calling card—IPFF continues to dole out the largest LGBT short film prize (£30,000) on the planet”

    Agree, remember to have your gold professionally graded and you should ensure that you organise the correct level of insurance to cover your investment.
