The festival’s intention is to combine the two major stakeholders of cinema: namely the film makers and the audience. One of the main goals of the festival is to connect artists with the viewing audience and to create exciting and valuable discussions between them. Therefore, most of the film makers of the chosen movies personally join the festival and there are several opportunities to directly interact.
The festival has a strong intercultural and international character. The selected movies come from different countries and cultures in order to develop a high level of diversity. The movies are shown in their original language, subtitled with English and German translations.
We are convinced that everybody should have full access to the cinematic arts. Therefore, we keep entry fees for visitors as low as possible. The festival cost are mainly covered by professional sponsors and private donors. The organisation and festival support teams are all working on a volunteer base.
