An international jury will award the 'interfilm Short Awards' in the following categories:

  • Best Film - Best Documentary

further prizes will be awarded in the following competitions:

  • International Films for Children
  • International Films Against Violence and Intolerance
  • German Short Film Competition
  • eject 'The Long Night of the Unexpected' (the 'eject' audience prize)


Apart from the competitions, the festival also includes historical short film programs, special focus programs (Romania, Czech Republic, Brazil, South Korea), video programmes, music clips, commercials, documentary films and computer animation, as well as the chance to catch up on highlights from previous interfilm festivals. There will be thematically related seminars, parties and of course the 'eject-night' where the audience chooses the weirdest and most wonderful film at 'The Long Night of the Unexpected'. Accredited guests are welcome to view any of the festival entries at the film market.

The application deadline is the 14th July 2006. (the earlier, the better !)
