First class cinematic art, (re-)discovery of of filmhistorical treasures, Talent Lab, forum for critical forms of discourse on society. April 2016

We want to bring the best films from Central and Eastern Europe to Wiesbaden, Frankfurt, Darmstadt and Mainz. For a week in April 2016, we will present over 100 short, documentary and feature films. One of the highlights of the programme is the East-West Talent Lab, which fosters and connects young filmmakers from Central and Eastern Europe and Germany. With this campaign we would like to invite as many filmmakers as possible to personally attend the festival.
