We are very pleased to inform you about two new prizes that will be awarded at the Hof International Film Festival starting this year. In addition to the well-known “German Talent New Cinema Award”, “Granit – Hof Documentary Film Award”, “Hans-Vogt-Award”, “Bild Kunst Award” and the “Hof Gold Prize of the Friedrich-Baur-Foundation”, the city of Hof, already benefactor of the “Award of the City of Hof”, which has been awarded annually since 1986, has decided without further ado to offer two additional prizes: the SHORT FILM AWARD OF THE CITY OF HOF and the PUBLIC SHORT FILM AWARD OF THE CITY OF HOF.
The SHORT FILM AWARD OF THE CITY OF HOF is determined by a jury consisting of three members for short films from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. For the PUBLIC SHORT FILM AWARD OF THE CITY OF HOF, on the other hand, visitors can vote for all short films in the cinema as well as digitally at our streaming festival. The awards are each endowed with Euro 2.500.
