*German production: what does that mean?

Based in and operating from the German capital of Berlin, Shortcutz Berlin values itself as a meeting and exchange point for the local and national short film and video scene. In our age of constant roaming, Shengen and multi-culturism, we consider a work to be “German” if is has been either made, planed, produced or post-produced by a German citizen or a German resident. If you live or stay in Germany only temporarly, or you just arrived, but you have previous works you would like to share with the Berlin audience, please don’t hesitate to write to us in any case, as your short can be entered for the Guest Short category.
