The first shnit International Shortfilmfestival took place in 2003 in Bern, Switzerland, and since then it is held annually in October. Over the past 13 years, shnit developed from a low-key festival into an international one, expanded into 8 venues all over the world, set up a number of workshops and discussion on cinema and became one of the largest short film festivals not only in Switzerland, but on a global scale. This year the Festival will feature a whole new programme and will be held in Moscow for the third time, on October 5-9th, at KARO Film October and Illusion cinemas. MORE
