Festival indefinitely postponed

cellu l’art Short Film Festival 2020 indefinitely postponed The current COVID-19 pandemic is giving us no further option than cancelling the cellu l’art Short Film Festival 2020 for the planned date at the end of April. We’d like to thank everyone who worked hard with us during the last months to organise a great cellu l’art Festival 2020 with a fabulous programme - not least our sponsors, filmmakers and audience! Now we need to consolidate within the organising team, want to clarify consequences affecting finances, staff and content. Time will show how we can manage and if we will be able to host the festival 2020 in one or another way. Of course we will keep you up to date about a possible new date or an alternative form of holding the festival and hope that you will keep in touch with us. Also in these exceptional times we will dedicate ourselves to our favorite art form. In the next weeks, we are going to share some wonderful short films on facebook and on our website. Stay curious! Keep watching and stay healthy!
