Donate now

IFFF Dortmund+Köln sees film as an expanded concept that doesn’t restrict the screening of films to classical cinema. The festival advocates showing films in all kinds of formats. And so, on top of the festival’s core programme, it has a film programme specific to each year, and features regular collaborations, holds talks and panel discussions, artistic projects and interventions in public spaces as well as book publications.

World Views

As the name suggests, the World Views series offers a broad selection of films from many different countries and cultures. The themes of the series are openness, understanding, tolerance and forms of dialogue that embrace diversity.



The ifs internationale filmschule köln and IFFF Dortmund+Köln have joined forces, tapping their synergies to raise awareness of the work of women directors in the cultural sector and at film schools.


Art on the MOve

Art on the MOve is a collaboration between Museum Ostwall and IFFF Dortmund+Köln.
