Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen

MuVi Online 2018


The 20th MuVi Award goes online

Voting starts on 5 April and ends on 5 May


Eleven German clips are competing for the 20th MuVi Award of the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, selected from 238 submissions. They feature well-known German actors such as Corinna Harfouch or Sandra Hüller, the best shower scenes from film history or some very diverse animation techniques. From 5 April to 5 May 2018, the clips are ready for voting for the MuVi Online Audience Award, which starts on 5 April at 12 noon CET.


The 20th MuVi Award focuses again on creative power and a wide range of formats and techniques. Dennis Todorović’s Clip for Tutorial by Erdmöbel, for example, is a tutorial on how to cry on command, which works, at least for Corinna Harfouch, Annika Meier and other great actors who consented to act as guinea pigs. Sandra Hüller, on the other hand, practices her superhero skills in Daniel Freitag’s Don’t. In Limerence for Yves Tumor, Oliver Pietsch combines the best shower scenes from film history; Ulrike Göken and Jo Zimmermann cross young people with dandelions, tangerines or fake eyelashes for Schlammpeitziger’s Damenbartblick, and two of the video are about things: Markus S. Fiedler’s hypnotic computer animation Things for Andreas Spechtl and Iskender Kökce’s uncanny video Dinge for Station 17, whose track also features Andreas Spechtl.


Now everyone can watch the clips online for the MuVi Online Audience Award and vote for their favourite. The prize is endowed with 500 Euros and will be awarded on Saturday, 5 May, when all clips will be presented on the big screen. From 5 April to 5 May they are available on, on the festival’s Facebook page and on the sites of the MuVi partners 3sat, coolibri, INTRO and K.West.
