Webcuts - Internet Film Fest Berlin
Webcuts is the international festival for internet films. The best internet films from around the world are presented to an international audience on Oktober 6th, 2005 at the Cinestar Berlin and via live stream on the web.
Webcuts has established itself as the only festival globally for internet films. Films are submitted by professional artists and agencies from all corners of the world, from Brazil to Poland and Israel and everywhere in between.
Webcuts is characterised by its colourful variety and openness – just like the medium internet and the internet films themselves. Webcuts presents the most exciting art works of international internet film, a young, but vibrant and technically already highly sophisticated art form.
To do justice to the rich variety of internet films, there are no limits or categories for Webcuts. The films encompass a broad spectrum of production methods and modes of artistic expression: films that were produced using traditional editing techniques as well as 3d animation and motion graphics. What unites all Webcuts entries: You can only find internet films online and you will be mesmerised by their technical and artistic standards.
Movies of the Web
Avant-garde graphics experiments in iridescent green and purple, short movies complete with plot, 3d animation and tragic heroes or an entertaining contemplation on music, elk antlers and a fly on a vinyl record.
Internet films fascinate through their vivacity, they reflect current trends in web design and film and they are of a non-commercial nature. They are the artistic form of expression of a digital generation. For the makers of those films, the internet is all at once playground, workplace and an unlimited creative space, where they can create and publish their art work.
An exciting Story
The internet film festival Webcuts was founded in 2001 in Berlin and takes place for the fourth time this year.
Originally founded by young enthusiasts from the internet agency area42, Webcuts has since established a worldwide reputation and has become the forum for internet films world-wide.
