The International Short Film Week Regensburg was founded in 1994 under the name Regensburg Short Film Week by the Arbeitskreis Film Regensburg e. V. as a non-profit festival which only screens short films.

The program will focus on the various competitions:
The International Competition, the German Competition, the Bavarian Competition, the Regional Competition and a competition for short films dealing with an architectural film theme. The special program concentrates on thematic and regional focuses as well as the presentation of film schools and other festivals. At the upcoming festival edition, the country focus will be Mexico.
