"The films of Berlinale Shorts are cinema’s unsolicited requests to take the floor and speak. They radiate the full range of colours, stretch the boundaries and lay down new tracks in the vast field of cinematic possibilities. They function as a seismograph of our times. Berlinale Shorts is open to all genres, styles and subject matters."
