Several films receiving awards at one of the major international crossroads for the short form - the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen will be shown in Sofia Wednesday and Thursday.

The films will play at the Goethe Institute beginning at 7:30 pm.

The Oberhausen Festival has a 55-year-long history. Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, Roman Polanski and other top movie directors have made their first steps in the world of cinema at Oberhausen.

Over 6 000 short films take part in the festival each year and only 500 make the program final cut.

The films to be shown in Sofia have been awarded between 2005 and 2009.

They include 'City Paradise' from the UK, 'Wild Boy' from Israel and the German 'Extended' and 'Untitled' among others.
