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 presented one of these films every week from 2017 to 2021. Because of its success and because we didn’t want to lose the finds again in the flood of images on the web, we showed and collected them here on our website.
In 2021 we reached the end of our list, and the “Legendary Shorts” are being replaced and continued by a new series from 1 January 2022: “Oberhausen Revisited. Our festival history in shorts”, in which we present a film from our festival editions since 1954 every Sunday, legendary or not.
