Short Outline:
fourteen successful years of the ‘International Low and No Budget Short film-sharing Festival’ has inspired us to continue despite the disheartening of the cultural institutions.
Budgets for culture and the arts are being cut or axed. However, humour is when, in the face of adversity, you can still laugh! This year, we will defy commercialism and
capitalism and raise up our ‘Low and No Budget Film Festival’ with the opening in Stuttgart, Heilbronn, Schwäbisch Gmünd and Mainz. Moreover, we will continue to
offer the ever increasingly popular internet forums, which publishes the un-filtered short films, as an antidote [AA antithesis, counter platform]. We will be showing the s
ubmitted films on the big screen to the interested public who can discuss and talk together before, during and after the films. We will be showing the Film Festival Programme at selected cinemas. The festival is a non-profit endeavour and a large part of the entrance tickets will remain with the cinema operators to cover their costs.

We will show all short films under 15 minutes and we look forward to receiving new productions as much as older short films or even youthful follies or transgressions!
The audience itself decides at the open screenings in April and May which films will be included and shown in the July Festival Programme. All film makers,
whose film is shown, will receive the Film Festival OSCAR 2018 programme brochures.

 History:
The annual Film Festival was established in Vienna in 2003. Since then it turned into an annual event and has expanded mostly in Germany.
The main venues are now Stuttgart, Heilbronn and Mainz and now Schwäbisch Gmünd and Sigmaringen. All films are collected and complied and then
shown at these locations. Film makers, who fall loosely under the ‘independent film makers’ category, from throughout the world, submit their short films.
Annually, we receive about 1,000 films which we then sort and compile into thematic genres.

Point of Special Attention:
The Film Festival does not award any material or monetary prizes, rather it proudly offers the broad public and large audience. A prominent feature is the so-called
‘open screenings’ that present the full and rich character of the films including those that that receive less public attention. Over 200 people come together in both
cultural centres and restaurants to rate the submitted films from over 50 countries.
We will show all short films under 15 minutes and we look forward to receiving new productions as much as older short films or even youthful follies or transgressions!

    Its pretty much the same: on Filmfreeway it says our short film was selected, but there was no communication of the festival whatsoever. A month later we doublechecked with the festivals website - our film wasn't part of the announcend official selection...

    It says on filmfreeway that my film was selected, but the staff of the Low & No Budget Film-Sharing Festival 2016 never contacted me nor screened my film. So overall a pretty bad and confusing experience. Does this festival even exist?
