We wish to take the opportunity to thank all the authors and distributors who submitted their films. After seeing 439 short films from around the globe, we can conclude that it was a great year in the world of shorts, and that we could have screened even more films if we had more festival nights on our hands. Kustendorf Competition Programme will be streamed between Friday 22 January and Monday 25 January 2021, along with the other festival programs.
