Oberhausen is the oldest short film festival in the world. Many acclaimed filmmakers and artists such as Roman Polanski, Cate Shortland, George Lucas and Eija-Liisa Ahtila have taken part in it. For years, the festival has also enjoyed an excellent reputation in the art scene. In 2020, due to the pandemic, the festival was conducted completely online for the first time. With over 2.500 passes sold and users in almost 100 countries, the new format proved to be a surprising success. This year’s edition will be online too.
