The Short Film Week Regensburg was founded in 1994 by the Arbeitskreis Film Regensburg e.V. and takes place annually in March. Nine awards are awarded in four competitions. Fiction, documentary, animation and experimental film are given equal status.

Beyond the competitions, a broad special programme deals with a thematic focus and a country focus. These are complemented by retrospectives, lectures, exhibitions and workshops.
