International Short Film Festival Oberhausen has launched a new video-on-demand platform. This platform that features about 270 short films and film clips from the festival, is fully controlled by the filmmakers. The films will be available in full for streaming or download, either for free or for a charge, depending on the filmmaker.
Currently available are films by Thomas Draschan, Jeanne Faust, Robert Frank, Ken Kobland, Jan Svankmajer, Jaan Toomik and Zelimir Zilnik. The platform also has an extensive short film database to which new films will be added every year from the festival’s market catalogues.
New films will be added from the current festival programmes as well as from the festival archive, beginning with the competition nominees at the 57th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen. “Oberhausen Films Online” can be visited at www.kurzfilmtage.de/en/videotheque
