Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen

MuVi Award

Sketch Artist @ Loretta Fahrenholz

From MTV and YouTube to the big screen: with the MuVi Award for the best German Music Video, Oberhausen launched the world's first festival prize for music videos in 1999. Over the years, the MuVi Award has become a meeting place and forum for filmmakers, the trade press and the short film scene - a place to make discoveries and be discovered. Above all, it has developed into a real audience favourite.


The profile of the MuVi Award is clearly defined: the Festival pleads for the exceptional visual form.

Nolove @ Sergey Kushnir

In addition to the MuVi Award for the Best German Music Video the Festival will launch the MuVi International Award for the best international music video in 2021.


The two music video competitions will present the same line-up both online and on site.
