International Changing Perspectives Short Film Festival

International Short Student Film Festival.


The Festival will screen the short features, short documentaries, short animations etc. of students and exchange students and teams who express different perspectives about being a foreigner in another culture.

All the students in different countries are having a different experience during their study abroad. Some of them find themselves in a complete different climate and some of them find themselves in a complete different language. Some students struggle with communication and some struggle with participation. In some places they enjoy a complete different culture and in some they enjoy the multiculturalism. Each place offers you different life, a different world and a different you. Once you step in the place you are no longer a local, but a stranger.
