Gender Disclaimer

We strive for gender-sensitive language in all our publications. This includes, for example, the use of gender-neutral terms and pronouns. In German texts, we use the gender asterisk. 

Exemption of liability:

Despite careful control of the content we are not liable for the content of external links. The owners of the external sites are responsible for the content of the linked websites.

Despite careful scrutiny, the editors do not guarantee the correctness, relevance or completeness of the information published on this website. The editors reserve the right to change the website in its entirety or in part without notice, or to stop publishing entirely.

All trademarks appearing on our website, and most likely protected by others, are subject to the conditions of the copyright and trademark rights of the registered owner. Simply by being named on our website should not lead to the conclusion that these trademarks are not protected by third party rights.


Liability for contents:

The contents of our websites have been compiled with utmost care. However, we cannot be held liable that these contents are correct, complete and up-to-date. Pursuant to Article 7, sub-section 1, of the (German) Telemedia Act (TMG), we are in our capacity as a service provider responsible for our own contents that are published on these websites. Pursuant to Articles 8 - 10 TMG, service providers are neither requested to supervise external information transmitted to, and stored on, these websites nor to search for circumstances that point to unlawful activities. This shall not affect our duty to remove or block the use of such information on the basis of the general laws. However, such kind of liability can only become effective from the moment we have gained knowledge of a violation of law. We shall therefore remove any such contents immediately after having gained knowledge of such infringement of the law.


Liability for links:

Our offer contains links to third-party websites, over the contents of which we have no influence. We therefore cannot accept any liability for these third-party contents, since the responsibility for such contents always rests with the relevant offeror or provider. The linked websites have been checked for possible infringements of the law at the time of linking and none have been identified at that time. However, it would be unreasonable to expect us to carry out checks of linked websites on a permanent basis without a definite lead to a possible infringement. When being notified of any law infringement we shall immediately remove such links.

Please be aware that we cannot give individual credits for images used in either festival publications or press articles. The images are published solely for the purpose of advertising the respective film or the festival programmes. Only with the explicit authorization of the rights holder will images be passed on to third parties. In our publication imprints we state: The image rights lie with the respective rights holder.

Their duplication, adaptation, circulation or any kind of utilization outside the limits of the copyright law require the written approval of the author or website owner concerned. Downloads and copies of this website are permitted for private use only, not for commercial purposes. Unless the content of this website has not been created by the website operator, third-party copyrights will be observed and third party contents will especially be marked as such. Should you still discover an infringement of the copyright law, please let us know. When being notified of any law infringement we shall immediately remove such contents.
