VIS Vienna Shorts is Austria's leading short film festival and qualifying festival for the Academy Awards® and the Austrian Film Awards. Every year at the end of May/beginning of June, the festival is all about international short films with a maximum length of 30 minutes, attracting 10.000 visitors and 600 industry representatives.
VIS wants to create tension and encourage fantasies, pique people’s curiosity and incite discussions, in short: generate the desire for short films. No matter if fiction or documentary films, animated or experimental work – at best, the experience of watching a film doesn’t end with the credits rolling and the festival represents enrichment for both the local audience as well as international short filmmaking.
The festival presents films in four competition sections as well as in Spotlights, Retrospectives, Special Programs, and Expanded Cinema. With its Vienna Shorts Agency – founded in 2014 – the festival continues and enhances the promotion of short films year round.
