15th Berlin International Short Film Festival 1999

In 1999, the venues participating in "interfilm 15" with the theme "Future & Ecstasy" were the Hackesche Höfe Cinema, the Filmkunsthaus Babylon, the Galerie Meinblau and the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (opening).

In addition to country presentations from Mexico and France, Bill Plympton from New York was invited as a special guest with his animated cartoons. In addition, there were extensive special programs.

eject II - The long night of deviant film

MEIN BLAU, the venue of trendsetting film opens its doors once again to expose ecstatic cineastes to a relentless short film marathon.

For eject II - The Long Night of Offbeat Film, a multi-faceted short film program has been put together with over 30 international entries. The jury for this competition will be the audience, who can use small mirrors to direct light onto an eject symbol. If enough light rays reach the sensor, it means eject and the film misses the leap into the 21st century.

The mega-event is presented and commented on by the supposedly virtual presenter MADAME BLEU, who redefines the fast-moving communication age in the course of the evening. She acts as successor of the meanwhile unfortunately career-bent HP 2000 (do you remember ?).
