56th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen
29 April – 4 May 2010

We are looking forward to your competition entries for our 56th edition
After 2009’s record-making festival - almost 600 films, over 18,000 visitors and more than 1,100 accreditations from over 50 countries - we now invite you to submit your entry for our 2010 competitions. The 56th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen will present five competitions: International, German, Children’s and Youth Film, Films from NRW and the MuVi Award for the best German music video, with its own set of regulations. Every year Oberhausen attracts filmmakers, festival representatives, curators, buyers,
journalists, distributors and, last but not least, an enthusiastic short film audience. For filmmakers around the globe, the festival is a platform where they can present their work to the public and network with buyers, other festivals and distributors. Oberhausen is interested in non-conformist films that develop their own language, take un-conventional standpoints and dare to experiment. International submissions must not have been shown at another German festival before Oberhausen. For all films that do not make the final cut, the festival will once again offer an Open Screening. Launched in 2009, this programme gives filmmakers who have submitted a work that was not selected for competition the opportunity to still show their film to the festival audience. On one condition: they must come to Oberhausen to present their work in person. The registration period begins with the announcement of the competition selections in mid-March. The entry requirements for the 56th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen in short:
