For a long time, short films made in Germany were screened separately from the Festival competitions. In 1991 the first German Short Film Competition was established in Oberhausen. Right from the start, both videos and films were admitted to this competition on an equal basis. Each year, some of these are also selected to the International Competition.

Among the entries in this competition and in the other German programs one can find names such as Jürgen Böttcher, Detlef Buck, Phil Collins, Hellmuth Costard, Doris Dörrie, Andreas Dresen, Valie Export, Harun Farocki, Jeanne Faust, Werner Herzog, Romuald Karmakar, Alexander Kluge, Volker Koepp, Korpys/Löffler, Bjørn Melhus, Matthias Müller, Werner Nekes, Peter Schamoni, Ulrich Schamoni, Angela Schanelec, Christoph Schlingensief, Rudolf Thome, Adolf Winkelmann and Sönke Wortmann.

For this competition as well, an independent Selection Committee is responsible for viewing all entries and selecting the nominations. The program includes primarily premieres and German first-runs and is especially valued by foreign visitors as a showcase of German short films. Two cash prizes totalling 7.500 € are awarded. The German Competition jury awards the prize for the best German short film of the year. 3sat, a German-language satellite television station, also awards a promotional prize in combination with a purchase option.

BOOM · Leyla Rodríguez 6:34min | Argentina (2018) Con una serie de siete cortometrajes en total, Leyla Rodríguez compone secuencias de familia e identidad. En muchos casos, se ensamblan tomas penetrantes autobiográficas e íntimas, desarrollando el carácter de los collages en movimiento. Imágenes ahistóricas, múltiplemente ambiguas y cargadas simbólicamente sugieren narrativas que ultimadamente quedan abiertas. De esta forma los cortos no generan una visión rigurosa del tiempo o la narrativa, sino en una especie de loop en la forma de interpretaciones variables y posibilidades de entrada. La relación entre naturaleza, cultura "Heimat" y "déspaysement" se presenta como un principio superordinado y recurrente, generando la melancolía y anhelo que subyacen los cortos.
