Our market catalogue is one of the largest resources for short film worldwide. Here you have access to the submissions of the Short Film Festival since 1997, which now include around 78,000 titles. All films are freely searchable with title, staff details, synopsis, genre, etc. Every year after the festival, the catalogue is expanded to include the latest submissions.
In 1989 the Short Film Festival set up a short film market for the first time, which met with a positive response from the very beginning. In the Video Library, the over 7,500 works submitted each year can be viewed, along with titles from the current screenings, the profiles and the thematic programme. Use is reserved exclusively for accredited visitors. Since 2021, the Video Library has also been available online to accredited trade visitors.
An additional service for the professional audience, especially buyers and festival representatives, is access to the current titles already during the respective festival as well as to the contact details for all films. If you are interested in this service, please contact Hilke Doering to request a password.
Since 2012, the service package has included access to the digital market catalogue, in which the entire annual volume of submissions is displayed. The film stock can be searched by genre, country, director, length or format, and sightings during the festival can also be planned in advance. The catalogue will be made available online about two weeks before the festival begins, protected by a password. Passwords will only be issued to accredited festival guests.
