About Shorts Attack
Launched by interfilm Berlin in March 2002, “Shorts Attack” is a monthly cinema program that is as diverse and surprising as short film itself. Screening at the Babylon cinema in Berlin-Mitte, Shorts Attack celebrated its 100th edition in summer 2010. For each individual program, films are researched and booked from filmmakers and distributors worldwide. Unrivalled in terms of quality, regularity, variety and endurance Shorts Attack’s brilliant thematic programs (featuring an average of 10 films per screening) are unique the world over.
Shorts Attack makes a point of presenting high qualitiy films from extremely different backgrounds and genres, showing shorts from film schools, studios and independent productions that range from live-action and documentary to experimental and animation. Furthermore, Shorts Attack programs embrace country focuses, genre-specific themes, political topics, pure entertainment and rarely seen gems. All foreign language films are screened with English subtitles.
The driving force behind the Shorts Attack vision is to further establish the presence of short film in cinemas everywhere. This project is partially funded by Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg and depends on the further support of numerous sponsors and partners.
Thanks to all filmmakers, cinema-goers and friends who have encouraged and supported us to date!
