Our themes: Love, crossing borders and the state of the world

The competitions this year include more than 70 current films. To make it easier for you to get an overview, we have provided thematic search fields to find your favourites.

Follow the paths of love (or its absence) in Avalon, A Lonely City, Faith and Branko or Joy; observe family ties with 80,000 Schnitzel, It's All the Salt's Fault, Forgotten Lands or Bad Mood; and question sense and being with The Guardian, Me or Between Me and the World / Cleaning Up. Find out which films take a closer look at the state of the world and which focus on “Heeme„ (or “home„ in the central German dialect).

With our programme you can easily filter titles by this year's topics.
