Ten days, fifty films, seven work­shops, one panel, one exhi­bi­tion - a suc­cess­ful and mul­ti­fac­eted Film­fo­rum 2023 is behind us.

We would like to thank all film­mak­ers who par­tic­i­pat­ed with their films and con­tributed to the great suc­cess of the fes­ti­val. 43 inter­na­tion­al guests trav­eled to Freiburg in person and answered the audi­ence’s ques­tions, 18 more were con­nect­ed via zoom. In six #Junc­tion pro­grams, the audi­ence was able for the first time to look live into screen­ing rooms in Ahmed­abad and Nairo­bi and dis­cuss what they had seen with the audi­ence there, a lively exchange in the tran­scul­tur­al sense of the festival.

We thank all those who con­tributed to the suc­cess of the fes­ti­val, whether as pro­gram direc­tors or as helpers.

We are look­ing for­ward to the next edi­tion of the Film­fo­rum in May 2025.
