International Film Workshop Online: Films for Future & Solidarity

This year's film workshop is taking place online, in three steps. The theme, "Films for Future & Solidarity," aims to address red-hot questions popping up especially now during the pandemic. It's about solidarity and cooperation - in families, in society and also in Europe. How are we dealing with the challenges? What does it do to us when we change - stop eating meat, limit our mobility and thus reduce our CO2 footprint...? Where is the fun in it all? After all, we could actually afford it all. We want to think about these things and play it out via film. Let's embrace the exciting challenge of making a film together online, and maybe even work together in-person in small groups. We will present the result at the festival or via livestream.
