Why have a Film Festival in Brejning?

The short film needs to get out to an audience and show its worth. It has a lot to offer the audience. Brejning is a cultural city with a lot of social and voluntary activity. Personally, I could not find a better match. The films are selected to entertain, amaze and inspire the audience. We're not looking for the next Von Trier, but for the next great movie experience.
Festival Director Claire Svendsen

We are ready for the next season of Brejning Film Festival.

The festival is a cultural initiative in Brejning, and should spread knowledge of the short film’s fantastic world and showing off Brejning’s beautiful surroundings.

Unlike other film festivals, we have a two-part jury consisting of a film industry jury and an audience jury.

Our first screening is in:

  • 00Days



We visit Cafe Brejning, which is a volunteer-run cafe and houses many exciting events. The cafe was the location for our first season.

During the festival you are able to enjoy one of the house’s refreshments while the screenings take place. There is a large drinks menu, desserts and meals at cheap rates.

It’s a really nice place and perfect for experiencing the Brejning hospitality. You’ll gain new friends in minuts.

The Jury

In our opinion a film is only a real success when both the industry people and the audience agree that it is good.

The audience (who are the end users / customers of the films) should be heard when the films are evaluated. They are the ones who ultimately pay to go to the cinema and rent movies. It’s about the value of the film to the audience.

We are a unique festival as most film festivals are judged solely by people from the film industry.

Our jury consists of:

The film industry jury judges the professional aspects of the films. Is the craftmanship up to standard?

The audience jury judges the entertainment value and whether one can relate to the film.
