Munich International Short Film Festival

Next on: 2016 dates yet to be confirmed
MUNICH INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL: Short-film buffs have a good excuse to visit Munich in June. This festival, known as KALIBER35, throws emerging film-making talent into the spotlight.
Non-German language films under 15min spanning documentary, fiction, animation and experimentation are shown.

Anything goes

EXPERIMENTAL: A scene from Dorte Wogh's short film The Pig.
There’s a focus on learning and experimentation in film and there are workshops and “master classes” to accompany the screenings.
The festival website charmingly claims “everything which is not forbidden is allowed”.

Danish director Dorte Wogh won the competition with a flick titled “The Pig” a few years ago.

The plot followed a lonely old man in hospital adopting a picture of a pig as his guardian angel, bringing him into conflict and discussion with the guy in the next bed - a Pakistani Muslim.
Festival organisers are offering free accommodation in Munich to film-making participants. Submissions are open from around the world and if the films aren’t in English they need to at least have English subtitles.
