For the past few years some of the most established film festivals in the world have curated a series of shorts for our festival. These selections make up our International Competetion Programme. For the third and final year of this arrangement, the festivals we collaborate with are: Venice Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, Sundance Film Festival, Berlinale and Kurzfilmtage Winterthur. In total 36 international shorts are selected and the films will automatically compete to win one of our main prizes, the Golden Chair and 5400 euros.
