About Us

Who we are

Talking Shorts is an online film magazine dedicated to short films. Our goal is to make shorts more visible and to create a wider discourse about the artform, closely connected to the international film festival landscape.

This project is a co-initiative founded in 2020 by Filmfest Dresden, NISI MASA & VIS Vienna Shorts, and also houses the industry-initiative BE SHORT NOW!.
