Dear EFF cinema community, dear partners, dear cinema friends

 Since the last announcements of the Federal Council , the situation for the planned Einsiedeln Film Festival (EFF) changed significantly. All public events are suspended and many other strong regulations have been announced. Unfortunately, we have to assume that the situation will not improve very soon. Therefore, after a diligent assessment of the situation, we came to the conclusion that we have to cancel – with deep regret – this year’s Film Festival.

As we prepared an amazing programme for you, the movies have been selected and the financial support by our sponsors is secured, we will run the Film Festival in the prepared format. We will postpone and re-schedule the Festival and will come back to you as soon as we will have fixed and agreed the new date with all stakeholders. Due to the unclear situation and the tight cinema planning, the Festival will probably take place only next year in 2021.

We count on you! Please keep your impatience and excitement for EFF, we will be back soon.

Grazyna Scheiwiller & the whole EFF team
