More and more festivals cancelled because of Corona virus


Spring is the high season for (short) film festivals in addition to the autumn months. Due to the Corona pandemic, more and more festivals are now being cancelled or postponed.
In Germany, these include the Landshut Short Film Festival, the Dresdner Schmalfilmtage, the European Media Art Festival Osnabrück, the Kurzsuechtig Festival in Leipzig, among others. Internationally, it affects, among others, the South By Southwest Film Festival, Austin, Cinéma du Réel – International Documentary Film Festival, Paris, the Short Waves Festival in Poznan, the Glasgow Short Film Festival, the Diagonale in Graz. Others will follow – relocations of the festival to the Internet, such as the CPH:DOX – Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival or the Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (ITFS), or the postponement to summer or autumn are currently the agenda.

We will try to update the dates in our festival calendar on or mark cancellations.
