The next Film­fo­rum will take place:

May 11 - 16, 2021

Since 1985, the Freiburg­er Film­fo­rum has been reg­u­lar­ly offer­ing a window to the world with its metic­u­lous­ly curat­ed pro­gram. In times of lim­it­ed mobil­i­ty, it is all the more impor­tant to see how people live in other places, and there­by reflect on our own lives at home.

Since the cur­rent fes­ti­val season has gotten under­way, these extra­or­di­nary times could also be seen as offer­ing an oppor­tu­ni­ty. People are strik­ing out on new dig­i­tal paths and are test­ing hybrid approach­es that can be expand­ed.

We are also work­ing extreme­ly hard to ensure that the things that char­ac­ter­ize our forum will be pos­si­ble next year: enthu­si­as­tic debates, cin­e­mat­ic explo­rations, and intense dis­cus­sions both inside and out­side the cinema. We are curi­ous to see what chan­nels we will find in these spe­cial cir­cum­stances to make this happen, if nec­es­sary also in the dig­i­tal realm.

Our stu­dents’ plat­form will be back again next year as an added fea­ture of our pro­gram. The call for entries is extend­ed. Debut and student’s films can be sub­mit­ted until Novem­ber 30, 2020.

We hope to see you all again at the Freiburg­er Film­fo­rum in May 2021!
