Every year, the festival receives several thousand data sets on submitted films as well as several hundred personal data of filmmakers, guests and accredited persons. The additional possibility of presenting films online and the registration required for this entails the management of a number of additional data sets. The protection of all this data and the prevention of data misuse is our top priority.

In all our actions, we strictly adhere to the VIENNA SHORTS Privacy Policy, the European Union's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and applicable data protection laws. We treat personal, film-specific and other data with care and ensure that personal rights and copyrights are not violated. An own data protection officer has been appointed by the festival respectively the association behind it to keep an eye on the compliance with these rules as well.
