Years running: 15 (since 2007)


International short film festival.


In an annual rotation one of three cities - Villach (Austria), Ljubljana (Slovenia) or Udine (Italy) - hosts the main festival, while in the other cities local competitions take place. The unique concept of doing K3 in three countries gives the participants the big opportunity to get to know three different cultures through film and real-life meetings. The festival seeks to go beyond boundaries between genres and is interested in innovative and fresh approaches in filmmaking. In 2013 Udine, Italy is a host of the K3 short film festival.
