In addition to our Corona Specials, we receive new initiatives almost daily that propagate a creative handling of the crisis. Now there is also the first – and as the makers hope – also the only Corona Short Film Festival. Until April 25th, the festival team is looking for contributions up to 5 minutes in length, which were made during self-isolation due to COVID-19. The topic and genre are completely optional.
An international seven-member jury of well-known filmmakers and experts (including director Claire Burger, actor Tom Wlaschiha and ZDF/Arte editor Catherine Colas) will award the jury prize, which is endowed with 1500 Euros. The online audience will also award a prize of 500 Euros. Both cash prizes are provided by fritz kola.
No entry fees will be charged, but the festival organizers will encourage donations for MEDECINS SANS FRONTIERS – DOCTORS WOTHOUT BORDERS.
