The 18th Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur announced their short film competition programme yesterday. The festival will take place from November 4-9, 2014 in Zurich, Switzerland.

56 films from 28 countries will run in the International and the Swiss competition. You can find the detailed programme of the International and Swiss programme on the official site.

The programme committee of the International Competition was delighted to see what a broad thematic and formal spectrum the submitted films presented again this year. The films in competition stand out because of their exciting stories, new forms of narration, strong audio-visual moments and their thoughtfulness. You can look forward to a global journey through the present and the past.

Check out the trailer they made for the festival, it’s pretty cool:
