Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen

Distribution catalogue 2017

The Oberhausen distribution catalogue 2017 is out

Featuring 44 new acquisitions from the 2017 festival programmes


A supporting film to match the feature film? A feature-length short film programme about a specific subject – migration or animal films, documentary film or China? The new Oberhausen distribution catalogue offers 44 new acquisitions from the 2017 festival programmes and a number of older titles as well as six feature-length compilations – a broad range of international short productions, including numerous award winners of the 63rd festival edition.


The International Short Film Festival Oberhausen is presenting six ready-made feature-length programmes this year: the best and most interesting productions from the 2017 competitions are gathered in the programmes “International Competition 2017” and “German Competition 2017”. The “MuVi Award 2017” programme features almost all the candidates for this year’s MuVi Award as well as two outstanding international music videos as bonus material. “Artist Film” offers six works representing different artistic positions in current international short film production, “Award Winners 2017” presents a selection of the award winners of the 63rd festival edition, including , the Chinese film Qiu (Late Summer) by Cui Yi, winner of the Grand Prize of the City of Oberhausen. The programme “A New Home” with six German short films that were not only audience favourites in Oberhausen but also won prizes at many other festivals offers a cross section of recent German short film production.


Interested borrowers can rent individual films or make their own compilation. The festival will on request offer assistance with compiling a programme or thematic research. In addition, excerpts of all films are available online here . The complete catalogue can also be downloaded from there as a PDF file.


Films and programmes from the Oberhausen distribution catalogue were screened in more than 100 different venues in 2016/17, including in Finland, Japan, Canada, Mexico and Uganda. The Oberhausen distribution service is international and non-commercial and open to borrowers with a non-profit organisational form.
