Open Screening

In 2009 the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen showed its first programme created entirely by the filmmakers themselves: the Open Screening.


Here all filmmakers who submitted a work for the competitions that was not selected still have the opportunity to present their film at the festival.


The only requirement for participation is that you present your film in Oberhausen personally. 


Since the programme volume is limited, you must register your film by e-mail if you want to take part in the Open Screening. Participation is based strictly on the order of registration. The application deadline will be announced by email. Each filmmaker may register one piece of work only. Works may not exceed a length of 15 minutes. We will not reimburse any travel expenses. Screening format is DCP.


The Open Screening will take place on two evenings during the Short Film Festival at our festival cinema Lichtburg Filmpalast.
