KALIBER35 Munich International Short Film Festival is pleased to invite
filmmakers from all over the world to enter their recent works for this
year's competition. The festival run by the Munich Film Society (Muenchner
Filmwerkstatt e.V.) will showcase the world's best contemporary short films
from June 21st through 27th in the Bavarian capitol. All filmmakers with a
film in competition do not only have the chance to win the festival's
prestigious awards, but are also invited to come to Munich and attend a
two-day master class held by an internationally renowned film professional,
participate in our Kino-Sports-Cup (more info below) and/or visit the world
famous beer gardens of Munich. So send in your submissions today!

Submissions are open to non-German language films of all genres (fiction,
animation, documentary, experimental, etc.) from any country. All
non-English films must have English subtitles. Also, the general conditions
of the participation assume that films must not have been shown in Bavaria
at a festival, in a theatre or on television (including arte) before, and
must not exceed a length of 15 minutes. The festival preferably screens HD
film files. The deadline for submissions is February 29, 2012. Please check
the complete submission requirements at

To submit a film, please register at ­ after registering, you
will be guided through the necessary steps, from the entry of simple data
requests to the upload of your video file. You may also send a DVD preview
copy to the address mentioned on the reelport website. Please do not send
your preview copy directly to the festival ­ it would not be considered.

If you don't have a suitable film ready, there's another way to take part in
the festival: for the second time, the Munich Film Society organizes this
year a Kino-Sports-Cup called KURZ&KNAPP (SHORT&TIGHT), giving filmmakers 35
hours to write, shoot, edit and complete a short film. The kick-off is on
Friday, June 22nd at 11pm. There will be elements announced which every film
will have to include ­ just to make sure that no film is pre-arranged. Then
the teams of filmmakers have 35 hours until Sunday, June 24th at 10am to
drop their film at the Munich Film Society. On the same evening at 9pm, the
Award Ceremony will take place with all the films shown, all the filmmakers
presented and the winners chosen. The participation fee of 35 Euros is
waived for international guests with a film in competition.
