The next Film­fo­rum will take place online:

May 06 - 16, 2021

With 30 films stretched over the course of 10 Days, our 2021 fes­ti­val pro­gram will take a closer look at every­day lives, work­ing con­di­tions, expe­ri­ences of migra­tion, the con­se­quences of eco­nom­ic growth and ques­tions of diverse cul­tur­al iden­ti­ties. Inter­spersed through­out the main pro­gramme, our stu­dents’ plat­form will show­case  care­ful­ly select­ed cur­rent, debut films from all over the globe that are deeply per­son­al, sen­si­tive and engaged.

For the first time, this year’s online edi­tion allows us to watch and dis­cuss films simul­ta­ne­ous­ly from var­i­ous cor­ners  of the world, which has result­ed in the addi­tion of an excit­ing new facet to the fes­ti­val: #FIFOJUNCTIONS! Part­ner­ing with DAP, Doc­u­men­tary Asso­ci­a­tion Pak­istan and our friends from DocuBox in Nairo­bi, Kenia, we want to use this oppor­tu­ni­ty to screen films simul­ta­ne­ous­ly in these loca­tions and dis­cuss them from mul­ti­ple per­spec­tives. You are more than invit­ed to join these dis­cus­sions from wher­ev­er you are, as we expect our selec­tion to be avail­able from most countries.

This year’s unique sit­u­a­tion calls on us to trans­late the char­ac­ter of our forum into the dig­i­tal realm. All of our films, panels, and online dis­cus­sions will be live streamed from the cinema hall to your dig­i­tal screens @ home. Focussing on live stream, online con­ver­sa­tions with our film­mak­ers as well as Watch­groups in dif­fer­ent parts of the world, we seek to create ways of coming togeth­er, con­nect­ing and exchang­ing that go beyond just on-demand cinema. 

The fes­ti­val pro­gram and advance ticket sales will be avail­able on our home­page by the end of April.
