200 films, seven days, five venues – now in its 11th year, British Shorts once again brings international prize-winning short films to Berlin’s screens, including numerous world and German premieres.
All kinds of films are represented, from drama, comedy, documentary, experimental film, music video, thriller to horror. As part of the festival opening at HAU Hebbel am Ufer, the films nominated for the jury prize will be introduced and an exciting programme with works from all genres will be presented.
The Screening features the animation “Delete Beach” by Phil Collins (a cooperation with Mica Levi and Studio4°C), the short film debut “Unseen” by theatre director Katie Mitchell, the comedy “The Silent Man” starring top comedian Simon Amstell and the entertaining doc “Fish Story” by The Guardian film critic Charlie Lyne – just to name a few.

Following the screening the band White Wine (Portland/Leipzig) will present their album “Killer Brilliance,” which was released this autumn.

In addition, DJ Betti Bo Bikepunk will play rock’n’roll, garage and soul in WAU, and you can watch experimental films by Ruaidhri Ryan in the entry lounge.
