Eine wahre Flut von knapp 500 fabelhaften Kurzfilmen, Dokus, Installationen und Musikvideos hat das ClipAward-Hauptquartier in Mannheim erreicht. Nach zwei Sichtungs-Sessions zeichnet sich eines ab - es könnte das stärkste Programm der Festivalgeschichte werden! Tiefgründig, abgedreht, unterhaltsam und vor allem eins: kurzweilig.

Das Festival, das traditionell im Frühling stattfand, wird aus organisatorischen Gründen auf den 03. - 05. Oktober 2014 verschoben. Die Filme im Festivalprogramm werden im Juli 2014 bekannt gegeben.

Wir freuen uns auf eine spannende 9. Festivalausgabe!


About 500 fabulous shorts, documentaries, installations, and music videos have reached the ClipAward headquarter in Mannheim. After two sighting sessions it appears that it might be the best program in festival history. Deep, kinky, amusing, and entertaining! 

Due to organizational reasons, the 9th edition of ClipAward will take place in October 3-5, 2014. The films in the program will be announced in July 2014.

We're looking forward to an exciting 9th festival edition!




In 2013, ClipAward illuminated the low budget short film scene of Israel within the framework of its international section. In spring 2014, the festival continued this project by cooperating with the Haifa Cinematheque and screening the "Israel in Perspective" section as well as the German best-of from the ClipAward 2013 program in Haifa. The event hosted the crews of 3 Israeli shorts, 2 German filmmakers and the ClipAward team as well as the representatives of the Municipality of Haifa and of the Haifa Foundation, among other people.
