einsiedeln film festival – the soul of independent cinema

Dear friends of the Einsiedeln Film Festival.
Due to the ongoing uncertainties surrounding the COVID pandemic, it will not be possible for us to hold the film festival in Einsiedeln in 2021 either. Large events are still prohibited and anyway at risk for the whole year. Our guests and filmmakers come from different countries and travelling remain difficult and highly restricted. Under these circumstances, it is not possible to plan and hold a valuable  film festival. We also made a conscious decision not to hold the festival virtually. That would not be in the spirit of our festival. We will publish the new 2022 schedules as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience!
