Short Film Day 2015
with 229 events all over Germany on December 21st


The shortest day of the year is a very special day for the short film. On December 21st, people in many different countries around the world celebrate the “short format”. The German edition is called the SHORT FILM DAY and took place for the fourth time this year. Anyone could participate in this special occasion and create their own short film event – whether it is in a cinema or in more unusual locations like football stadiums, back courtyards, living rooms, phone booths or even in refugee accommodations. 229 events were organized in 112 cities all over Germany.

The German Short Film Association, which organizes the German edition of the spectacle, has awarded the best ideas with the creative prize “The Lucky 8”. The prize was given to eight organizers for their unusual locations, exceptional film programmes or the fancy framework programme.
During the last years the SHORT FILM DAY could win lots of friends and fans, among them actors, filmmakers and film-enthusiasts. Some of them have become ambassadors, e.g. the filmmakers Axel Ranisch and Rosa von Praunheim, the actor Ludwig Trepte and the critic Knut Elstermann. In videos they tell about their personal relationship to the short film and the shortest day of the year. Again, the German State Minister for Culture and the Media, Monika Grütters, has taken the patronage for the SHORT FILM DAY. This year, young people were in focus for the first time. The young initiative “We’ll Show You” gave 12 to 19-year-olds the opportunity to organize their own film event for the Short Film Day. Young talents could independently develop their own ideas, select the films, invite guests and carry out the event. In the end, eight “young events” took place.
