Kurz Klub is a reoccurring international short films festival that gives small and big creators an open screen to show their work.

The festival happens twice a year in spring and fall.

It is accompanied by drinks, sketches, workshops and discussions - all of which are short.

After all the films are screened, we open voting for audience award that is given to the highest voted short film.

All the winning films automatically enter consideration for Kino Bled Film Festival, which will be held in summer 2024 at Bled and other locations.

In conclusion, we keep it kurz and so should you.

Stay kurz. 🤏
