Very low entrance fees have been one of the key elements of the Einsiedeln Film Festival.

This is not merely a proposal, it is a key message of the Festival. Cinema is not only entertainment. Cinema is also art and culture, which should be accessible and open to everyone. Of course, this concept only succeeds as long as we can count on our various business partners, sponsors and donors to support the Film Festival every year. This financial support is crucial. We send many thanks, in the name of all cinema goers, fans and festival visitors to all of our partners and supporters for their loyalty and generosity.

The Avina Foundation of Stephan Schmidheiny is our exclusive partner in supporting and developing newcomers and young talents. By means of Avina we create a platform for young talents and filmmakers in education within the Einsiedeln Film Festival to present their first movie projects on a broader audience. (Young talent category)

Each year on this page we will post the current sponsors and donors. The names will be posted a couple of months before the Festival.

Each donation and each amount is very welcome. If you wish to contribute and become a private donor, please get in touch with us at or transfer the amount, at your discretion, into our donation account:

CH11 0077 7008 8486 3091 5

We are extremely grateful for all kinds of support.
