On May 1, 2019, the 65th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen will open. Over the following days, the festival will present more than 500 films, including 139 in the five competition sections (International Competition, German Competition, NRW Competition, MuVi Prize and Children's and Youth Film Competition.) The Ecumenical Jury awards a prize in the International Competition and a recommendation for a film from the Children's and Youth Film Competition.

The section "Theme" with the title "The Language of Temptation" is dedicated to trailers as short film genre, both in their commercial form and in their artistic appropriation by individual filmmakers. In the section "Profiles" the festival presents the short films by Aleksandr Sokurov from the years 1980-1996 in six programs, as well as his six-and-a-half-hour documentary "Duchovnye golosa" (Spiritual Voices) about a Russian military base on the northern border of Afghanistan in 1995. Further programs of the the section are dedicated to Filipino filmmaker Kiri Dalena, Japanese Kayako Oki and Greek Eva Stefani.
