Our international shortfilm festival takes place in Lenzing, a small village near the beautiful lake Attersee (Austria). One week in every year, we celebrate the genre shortfilm (fiction, documantary and animation) and welcome filmmakers from all over the world. What makes our festival special are the open discussions between filmmakers, audience and jury after each film block.
People love our famous BBQ at the lake. It is a funny get-together with fine food and live-music.

"The Lenz Award" for the best film in all main categories, Youth Award, Best Upper Austrian Film Award, UNICA Award, Audience Award

We show fiction, documentaries and animation films from 1 to 30 minutes.

    A really lovely festival run by wonderful, generous souls. Unusual in that it invited selected filmmakers to join the programme for a week, with free accommodation included. I love how it's a meeting of filmmakers, a creative catalyst, in beautiful Austria. Very much looking forward to attending next year.
