shortfilms and music videoclips


This year the backup_festival takes place in Weimar, Germany for the 8th time
from October 19th till 22th. Not only shortfilms are presented at the former
industrial area of the eWerk but also a big range of other artistic projects:

The backup.award is in the centre of the festival a competition of national and
international short film movies apprehending the topic of "new media". The
examination of digital means of production and their influence on narrative
structures and reflection of the medium film itself is of special interest.
The international backup.clipaward honors videoclips, connecting motionpicture
and music in an especially innovative way.
Texts written in an essayistic style concerning the topic "Contemporary cinema
as a political stage" can be handed in for the competition of backup.plaintext.
The articles should not contain more than 2000 words.

Closer information on participation conditions and the festival itself can be
found at The best contributions of each category will
be awarded by an independent jury of film and TV makers, producers and media

Besides the competitions the festival also offers a variety of other cultural
supplies: international short films from partner festivals and universities in
France, Eastern Europe and - for the first time - China can be regarded in Films made at the Bauhaus University Weimar over the last ten
years are shown in the forum Best of Bauhaus.

The chance of discussing is offered to filmmakers, students and generally film-
interested visitors in the backup.closeup including panel discussions with
several filmmakers and media theorists. The backup.loungelab contains an
extraordinary selection of artistic room- and sound-installations which can
also be considered as a possibility for open dialogs with the creators.
Last but not least the organizing the festival night with concerts
and DJs has made the backup_festival become an attractive event not only for
short film interested people but also for all of those fascinated by innovative
modern art.
