FilmFest Dresden is one of Central Europe's most important film events dedicated to short films. It gathers filmmakers and film fans from all over the globe to present the latest and most innovative film works.

Awarded by the audience, Zima is a mosaic portrait of a small fishing village, where man and man, man and animal, animal and animal are interdependent in a delicate balance of warm, tender care, and cold, emotional cruelty. It is an amazing story about loneliness and community in the spirit of magical realism..
