Special Germany short films program “Short Export 2020”
It is the 15th year now that the SHORT EXPORT – MADE IN GERMANY program travels the world with a selection of German short films. In 2020, the continuous Franco-German cooperation between AG Kurzfilm – German Short Film Association, German Films, the Goethe-Institut Lyon, the Kurzfilm Agentur Hamburg and the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival has once again resulted an outstanding short film program.
SHORT EXPORT 2020 presents six current films, selected from almost 600 German submissions in Clermont-Ferrand, which illustrate the artistic, stylistic and thematic diversity of German short film making. In a humorous and unconventional manner, the films deal with home, self-optimization, strong women and weak men.
SHORT EXPORT – MADE IN GERMANY is available for Goethe-Institutes, Robert Bosch Cultural Managers and their partnering organisations all over the world.
The program is available in original version with German, English and French subtitles. We are looking forward to numerous tour dates and wish good entertainment on all continents!
