About the Event

We're super excited to announce our collaboration with Goethe-Institute Max Mueller Bhavan Mumbai, to bring to you, 𝐒𝐇𝐎𝐑𝐓 𝐄𝐗𝐏𝐎𝐑𝐓 – 𝐌𝐀𝐃𝐄 𝐈𝐍 𝐆𝐄𝐑𝐌𝐀𝐍𝐘, a strong short film program for a global audience that offers a selection of German short films internationally.

Currently, in its 15th year, this ongoing Franco-German cooperation between AG Kurzfilm – German Short Film Association, German Films, the Goethe-Institut Lyon, the Kurzfilm Agentur Hamburg and the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.

In 2020, SHORT EXPORT presents six new films, selected from almost 600 German submissions in Clermont-Ferrand, which illustrate the artistic, stylistic and thematic diversity of German short film making. In a humorous and unconventional manner, the films deal with home, self-optimization, strong women and weak men.

The programme consists of the film screenings with a total duration of 82 mins., followed by an online conversation between the film-makers and Michaela and Karan Talwar of Harkat Studios.

Date & time:

7th August, 7 pm

Q&A with the filmmakers: 8.15 pm
