freiburg film forum
africa | amer­i­ca | asia | ocea­nia
22nd to 28th May 2017

The freiburg­er film forum will open its doors on May 22, 2017, with an exten­sive pro­gram of films and the stu­dents’ plat­form as an addi­tion­al fea­ture.


In coop­er­a­tion with the Robert Fla­her­ty Film Sem­i­nar in New York, the freiburg­er film forum will be show­ing a selec­tion of his­tor­i­cal and con­tem­po­rary doc­u­men­tary films that active­ly engage with social real­i­ty in North Amer­i­ca. In light of cur­rent polit­i­cal devel­op­ments and the gen­er­al global shift to the right, the freiburg­er film forum will be look­ing at not only the people who are affect­ed, but also dif­fer­ent approach­es to and models of taking a stand against increas­ing xeno­pho­bia and social injus­tice.

The freiburg­er film forum has been show­ing cur­rent pro­duc­tions from Africa, the Amer­i­c­as, Asia, and Ocea­nia since 1985, and it con­tin­ues to make a major con­tri­bu­tion to tran­scul­tur­al dis­course through its choice of themes. Its work­shop atmos­phere and mod­er­ate size lend the fes­ti­val a cer­tain inten­si­ty and allow for con­ver­sa­tions about film that are attrac­tive for direc­tors from all over the world. As an added bonus, the stu­dents’ plat­form also presents the oppor­tu­ni­ty to view a selec­tion of inter­na­tion­al debut films by tal­ent­ed direc­tors.
