FILMFEST DRESDEN was founded in 1989 before the imminent collapse of the GDR and reunification of Germany.
Since its inception as a forum for banned or rarely screened feature films, FILMFEST DRESDEN has developed into a short film festival with a permanent position on the international circuit. Dresden's long animated film tradition, such as being the location of the former East German DEFA Animation Film Studios, proved to be a key factor in the decision to introduce competition sections for fictional and animated films especially.
The festival focuses on short film in all its facets, and has become one of the most important festivals of its kind throughout Germany. FILMFEST DRESDEN is also one of the best endowed short film festivals in Europe with prizes and awards worth €67,000.
