History – From where did the festival originate?
Grazyna Scheiwiller launched the film festival in 2015 and continued to develop it, step by step, over the following years. The annual editions of the festival have been driven by the continually positive feedback of the audiences. In the past, the festival has been held in cooperation with a cultural association (Dialog) focusing particularly on Eastern European movies. In 2018 the festival became independent and now retains no specific regional focus. The festival is an independent platform for autonomous international cinema, owned and supported by CineArt GmbH.
