The Preselection Jury 2022

Every year so many short films are submitted for Filmschoolfest that we ask an independent, highly qualified jury to sift through them and determine those that will screen in our official program. In 2022, there were about 290 submissions from 42 different countries, of which between 40 and 55 will end up being shown on the big screen at our festival between November 13 and 19. We are very happy about the many filmmakers who sent us their entries and hereby thank the three people who will decide this week which of the films will be screened at the 41st FILMSCHOOLFEST MUNICH.

Our preselection jury 2022 consists of:
