Oberhausen Short Film Festival is held May 2 – 7 and one of the 2 oldest and most important short film festivals in the world.

"Short film is a great first step for a budding filmmaker. That's how I made my beginnings and Oberhausen was an important step on my path to become a Director." -- Roman Polanski
"I smoked my first cigarette here. For years, I saw every single film at the Westdeutsche Kurzfilmtage, looking forward to those days in Oberhausen every year. These events were important for me, for my decision to become a filmmaker." --Wim Wenders
