interfilm likes good films. That's relative of course. But we cannot and do not want to specify our criteria, because we are generally open to everything the short form has to offer. Not only do we love films produced to a high standard with an international flair for success, but also those that are courageous in style and content.
The festival program: 7 competitions are planned: International Competition, Confrontations Competition, Documentary Competition, German Competition, Green Film Competition, Eject XVIII and Online Competition.
Also: interfilm is an oscar-qualifying festival!
Since 2018, the winners of Best Live Action and Best Animation Award in the International Competition will be eligible for consideration in the Live Action Short Film and Animated Short category of the Academy Awards® without the standard theatrical run, provided the film otherwise complies with the Academy rules.
