|WÖFF - West-Östliches Film Festival
(West-East Film Festival), Berlin, Germany
Closing : ???
The organisers declared the 2012 edition would be the
final one, but at the event in April there was
discussion of re-starting it with a new team. As of
mid-August we have no further news.
For many years it was an international Short Film
Festival Berlin. It focused on films from West and East
Europe. It aimed to help independent filmmakers meet
each other and to promote understanding between eastern
and western cultures. 2012 was the last year that it
would be organised by Rainer Hässelbarth. We hope
someone else will take on the job, but this just might
be the last in this longstanding festival, which was
formerly known as "Window to the East".
Films had to be non-commercial, amateur or student and
no longer than 20 minutes. The festival's official
language was German, though films that do not have too
much English dialogue would usually be understood by
most of the audience.
Entries accepted on miniDV and DVD.
