On the shortest day of the year, the Short Film Day takes place all over Germany. In Karlsruhe, it takes place twice this year: Interested visitors can expect the classic Short Film Day at the Schauburg Karlsruhe, but will also have the opportunity to watch the short films of the “Best of ITFS” (International Festival of Animated Film in Stuttgart) 2023 on a second day.

The ITFS Animation Tour kicks off the Short Film Festival in Karlsruhe. Viewers will be introduced to the best short films from the International Festival of Animated Film 2023. The artists will address current social issues: climate change, the risks of social media and dealing with the Holocaust.

On the actual short film day, various projects will be presented on the theme of “In der Schwebe” at the Schauburg Karlsruhe. Whether it’s a mother-daughter conflict, a fairy tale retelling, a sensitive short documentary or a film with typical British humor – there’s something for everyone in this diverse program.
