No short films for young audiences at the 71st Berlinale 2021 – Open letter to the directors of Berlinale


In 2021 NO SHORT FILMS will be shown in the GENERATION section of the Berlin International Film Festival. The cancellation of an entire platform for the short form at the Berlinale signifies the failure to address both the audience and industry.

Together with more than 30 international organizations, AG Kurzfilm – German Short Film Association drafted an OPEN LETTER addressed to the festival directors. The signers hope the decision will be reconsidered and the Berlinale will live up to its pioneering role.
