IKFF at a Glance
by Marinell Haegelin

International Kurz(Short)Film Festival (IKFF) – celebrating 32-years and going  strong – held its party from May 31 – June 6 this year. More than 300 short  films from over 40 countries screened in six Hamburg cinemas to the delight of  16,000plus guests. Offered as well were approximately 100 events, panels,  workshops, and lectures that were watched over by roundabout 150 festival team  members. In excess of 500 guests and around 120 filmmakers partook of the  festivities; IKFF supporters’ homes generously accommodated 560 accredited  guests from 34 countries. Running counter to IKFF was the 18th Mo&Friese Kinder (Children) Short Film Festival  May 29 – June 5, 2016. Eighty-two films from thirty-six countries were shown  with film workshops on offer for its many young and young-at-heart fans.  Betwixt the two, everyone of every age was guaranteed satisfaction to the nth degree.
