In its more than 60 year history, the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen has screened a great number of short films that are now legendary. Many of them can be found online today. So we went on an online treasure hunt and were successful.
The links we found first fed our Facebook series "Legendary Shorts", where we present one of these films every week. Because of its success and because we don't want to lose the finds again in the flood of images on the web, we will show and collect them here on our website from now on.
