"46th International Short Film Festival"
2000-05-04 until 2000-05-09
Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen gGmbH
Oberhausen, , DE Germany

The selection is complete: Having viewed more than 3,500 films and videos, the selection committees of the Oberhausen Festival have determined the competition films of the forthcoming festival. 141 works will compete in four competitions for 16 awards worth a total of 75,000 DEM.

With 68 films and videos from 33 countries, the INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION is the largest section. The biggest GERMAN (Short Film) COMPETITION features 28 films and videos, the International CHILDREN'S FILMS COMPETITION presents 36 films from 16 countries. Eleven candidates will compete for the MUVI-AWARD for the best German music video clip which was introduced in 1999.

The USA and Great Britain are traditionally well represented in the INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION, Australia and Russia are noticeably stronger represented than usual. Peru and Zimbabwe are among the smaller film nations represented with one production each. Among the directors of the INTERNATIONAL and GERMAN COMPETITIONS are well-known names like Eija-Liisa Ahtila (Finland), the Aleinikov Bros. (Russia), Emily Breer (USA), Isaac Julien (UK), William Kentridge (South Africa), Mike Mills (USA) or Rosa von Praunheim (Germany), and familiar faces in Oberhausen such as Philip Barker (Canada), Matthias Müller (Germany), John Smith (UK) or Cate Shortland (Australia).

In the CHILDREN'S FILMS COMPETION, the Scandinavian countries and Great Britain are traditionally well represented. More unusual: Two children's films from South Korea will compete, as well as a relatively high number of three documentaries for children.

The selection for the MUVI-AWARD sees some familiar names, too: Last year's winners Oliver Husain and Michel Klöfkorn are back with Funky People for Blaze, and so is Svenja Rossa who was among the top ten in 1999 with Der Mond for Rocko Schamoni. New names include Herwig Weiser and Rosa Barbara who directed the clip Distroia for Mouse on Mars.

The MuVi-Award Ceremony will take place on 6 May at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, the award ceremony for the other competitions will be on 9 May.
