«The Woodstock of Short Film». Ever since an English film magazine first used this expression to describe the unique atmosphere of the Open Air Filmfest Weiterstadt, a lot of things have changed. New (mostly digital) screening formats were established, the number of submitted films grew steadily (in 2014 there were around 2000 from over 80 countries) and supporting events like a short film poetry slam, an animation workshop and a super 8 film market were added. However, the festival’s basic idea remains the same: A large and enthusiastic audience gathers to watch inventive and creative films not limited to a certain style, production method or format. Filmmakers from all around the world present their films in person and answer questions. Live bands, local German beer and food help to create the typical «Weiterstadt feeling». To ensure that in our 39th year we can once again present our audience with a top-notch programme, we are looking for your creative works.
At the end of the festival there are two «best of» screening of selected films. The films for the «best of» screening in Weiterstadt at the festival area are selected by the audience. The films for the «best of» screening in Darmstadt at the «Centralstation» are selected by a jury from the festival.
