How will the festival take place in times of COVID-19?

We are very grateful that we could welcome our audiences in Leipzig’s cinemas for our 2021 festival. We screened the complete film programme on the big screen. For all who couldn’t attend the festival in Leipzig, we made a selection of more than 70 films from the programme available to watch online in Germany.

We will announce details on how the festival will look like in 2022 from early summer onwards.
