Exhibitions, competitions, films and more at the Stuttgart Filmwinter Festival 

This year’s programme for the Stuttgart Filmwinter Festival includes the International Short Film Competition and the Expanded Media Competition. More than 1.500 international entries from around the world came in for the competitions, and the winners will be announced during the gala and award ceremony on the final night.

As the festival and the full programme are taking place at different locations throughout the city, including the Theatre tri-bühne, the city library and FITZ! Cinema, we advise that you use public transport to travel from venue to venue. In addition, the weather can be quite unpredictable this time of year, so we recommend dressing warmly and in layers.
