Kurz ist das neue Lang! Warum eine vielschichtige Storyline wie einen ausgekauten Kaugummi auf 120+ Minuten langziehen, wenn du ihn auch in 5 Minuten wechseln kannst? Unsere Kurzfilme sind so geschmackvoll, dass sie auch in kürzester Zeit spannende, humorvolle bewegende Geschichten erzählen können. In der Kürze liegt die Würze!
