Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen

(Accredited festival guests only)


In 1989 Oberhausen set up its first short film market, a welcome addition from the start, as witnessed by its subsequent steady growth. Today, visitors can put together their own programmes out of the some 7,500 works submitted each year and then view them at one of 20 excellently equipped stations in the Video Library. Nowhere else do buyers, distributors, gallerists, curators, festival representatives and other trade visitors have such a wide range of current shorts to choose from. Also available are the works from the Screenings, selected titles from the Profiles and Theme programme. 


Since 2012 the market catalogue has been online in order to make working with this enormous film reservoir even more convenient. With searches possible by genre, country, director, length or format, navigating the film pool is now much easier. The catalogue will also be available about two weeks before the festival begins on a password-protected page.



The market catalogue will be available to accredited visitors online from 18 April 2019
