As part of Allgäu Pride Week we are showing MEISJESJONGENSMIX by Lara Aerts and ICH FÜHL MICH DISCO by Axel Ranisch.

31 August in Kaufbeuren, 1 September in Kempten


Our motto is a play on words with the invitation to watch films briefly in short. We want to revitalise cinema culture in the Allgäu, bringing young filmmakers to our wonderful region and promoting intercultural exchange.

Our audience should be open to new impressions and curious about the very different themes that German and international filmmakers present to us.

filmzeit is an independent festival for short films of all genres up to a running time of 40 minutes. In addition to prize money, the festival trophy Blasi, a small hare, is awarded in each competition. Bears, lions and leopards already exist elsewhere.

The festival in 2021

Main competion in Kaufbeuren:

TOP DOWN MEMORY by Daniel Theiler wins the Innovation Award and the Prize of the Students' Jury;

Jury Award and Audience Award for LIEBE, PFLICHT & HOFFNUNG.

The award for the best documentaty goes to MEISJESJONGENSMIX (GIRLSBOYSMIX).

SEEPFERDCHEN wins the competition; HAEBERLI is awarded a special prize.

From the best programme the filmzeit in Kempten has ever had, the jury chooses a supposed children's film as the award winner, opting for social relevance.

A fictional film about a deaf young man wins the jury prize!

The audience in Immenstadt is enchanted by a film with original music and a real string quartet.
