TEAMWORK

The shnit Worldwide Shortfilmfestival would like to thank all its partners, sponsors and supporters for their valuable cooperation. They contribute financially and materially to shnit and thus lay the foundation for the festival.

A big thank you goes to all volunteers, to the members of the organizing committee and to the staff and managers. They all make an inexhaustible, highly valued and irreplaceable contribution to this festival – most of them on an honorary basis. Thank you very much!

Last but not least: We would like to thank the filmmakers from all over the world for the overwhelming number of submitted short films, from which we were able to select the finest works for the programme of the 17th edition of the shnit Worldwide Shortfilmfestival and which we are happy to present to you – our highly appreciated audience!
