Copenhagen Short Film Festival 2013

For this, our first edition of Copenhagen Short Film Festival, we focus on Germany. The Hamburg International Short Film Festival, one of the most active and innovative in Europe, will present a pair of greatest hits compilations, and the filmmaker and kurator Claus Löser from Berlin will bring along five exceptional student short films from around Germany, with some of these filmmakers appearing in person. The UK is also represented, with a program from the Star & Shadow – a cinema collective from Newcastle – coming to introduce and screen a compilation of recent works from the region. From Denmark we are proud to present a selection of shorts from the film school Super16, as well as recent works from Station Next, an institution that teaches film to those under 18. Finally, twelve films that were handpicked from the many submissions that our open call-for-entries prompted, will screen under the banner of New Danish Shorts.
