The popular open air short film festival "shorts at moonlight" has also become a victim of the corona crisis. In 2020 it will not be able to take place as usual on the beautiful Schlossterasse in Frankfurt Höchst. But for all short film fans there is good news now: "Shorts at Moonlight" will take place this summer despite Corona! Just - like so many things this year - a little different. Because unaccustomed conditions demand new approaches. That's why the festival's organisation team has decided that this year, for the first time, there will be an online festival consisting of films that have already been shown in previous years and that have been particularly well received by the audience.</You can enjoy your short film either open air in your garden, on your balcony or on the terrace - or independent of the weather in your living room or comfortably in bed. The Shorts at Moonlight team has put together 15 different daily programs for you, each with a playing time of over 1 hour. Each daily program consists of 5 films, plus a moderation and a few short interviews with the filmmakers in the usual way. So despite Corona there is a real festival feeling - maybe not as usual, but still better than a summer without any short films at all.</p>
The festival starts on July 15th, as originally planned. On the usual festival days - from Wednesday to Sunday - a new programme will be made available online every day, so that on the last festival day, August 2, all 15 programmes will be available online. These will then be available until 31 August.
