International Short Films Competition

Each year 60 to 70 films from more than 1,500 entries are selected to compete in the International Short Film Competition that exists already since 1990. Only the most innovative, best, daring, experimental and original films of the last year make it into the competition. An independent selection committee consisting of Wand 5-members and film lovers doing this job voluntarily is in charge of viewing and selecting the entries and compiling the programmes.

The Stuttgarter Filmwinter is happy to host many film makers coming digitally to Stuttgart to present their works. The following awards are bestowed by the Short Film Jury, in person: Marlene Denningmann, Andrea Martignoni and Thomas Renoldner.
