cellu l'art
International Short Film Festival Jena


The heat is on in Thuringia!

cellu l'art International Short Film Festival Jena celebrates its 19th edition this year. From 24th to 29th April we present short films from all over the world and from all genres or film categories. We will make you laugh, cry, dance, and think.

You can get to know directors and producers and ask them about their films running in the international competitions, our country focus Scotland, or one of our numerous specials. Decide on the winner of the audience award or vote for the films you want to watch until the end at our brandnew event "Pixie Dust Massacre from outer Space". Enjoy our festival centre at Volksbad Jena and have a beer in a relaxed atmosphere in our festival lounge.

And if you wanna go dancing, well, no problem: Local heroes Jimmy Glitschy will rock our open air festival opening, and on Friday, 27 April there is our big cellu l'art aftershow together with the fine sounds of biotobt at the brandnew location Paradise Birds.

No matter which of our programmes and events you are visiting, we guarantee you the best entertainment and some amazing hours in the sign of short films.
