FiSH – Filmfestival im StadtHafen – is a yearly event dedicated to the young German and Baltic film scene that takes place in the city harbor of Rostock.
The heart of the festival is the German-focused JUNGER FILM competition and its Baltic-alterego, the OFFshorts competition. Both aim to award the best short films of the current independent filmmaker generation.

In cooperation with the Medienanstalt Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (MMV), the Media-Competence-Prize awards annually the best media educational project of the region. Moreover, together with the PopKW e.V. FiSH awards the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern music video prize : PopFiSH.

FiSH annually attracts more than 3.000 film enthusiasts to the various venues along the city harbor. Since 2017 the Festival has been under the patronage of the Prime Minister of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Manuela Schwesig.
