Friends and short film lovers

We regret to inform you that we have to postpone the HFF 4th edition.

ArtEpi project which was the umbrella for many activities including Herning International Short Film Festival 4th edition will not become a reality this year and therefore we are currently looking for new partners and new capital.

Directors, thank you for your interest. We received a record number of submissions which will not disappear and will be screened.

We will keep you informed of the progress for setting up a new venue and date.

Until then thank you for your valuable support and we hope to watch a lot of movies with you soon.

Best, Crew of HFF

Festival 2014

Herning International Short Film Festival 4th edition (HFF) – will take place Sep 13-14, 2014 in Præstbjerg, Denmark. This year we’re moving thirty kilometres away from our traditional location – Herning – as we teamed up with ArtEpi-Green performing city.

HFF 4th edition will present two days of short film screenings in two indoor venues along with outdoor screening. Over one autumn weekend film fans will have a chance to see new films and films that have premiered elsewhere. There will also be workshops focused on filmmaking, environment and sustainability issues, parties, discussions and the kind of people you want to share a beer with. The line up will be announced XXX.
