Celebrating its 15th edition, SHORT EXPORT -MADE IN GERMANY, the successful German-French cooperative project between the Goethe-Institut Lyon, the International Short Film Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, the AG Kurzfilm – German Short Film Association, German Films, and the KurzFilmAgentur Hamburg, presents a curated program selected from the several hundred short films submitted to the International Short Film Festival in Clermont-Ferrand. Each year, this program presents an exceptional and multi-facetted selection from recent German short film productions. This years' 85-minute SHORT EXPORT - Made in Germany program presents six current films, selected from almost 600 German submissions in Clermont-Ferrand, which illustrate the artistic, stylistic and thematic diversity of German short film making. In a humorous and unconventional manner, the films deal with home, self-optimization, strong women and weak men.
