What IFFF the future of film is female?

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. Based on the current collection presentation »Body & Soul« we draw on artworks and films to stimulate discussions on topics like age, body optimisation, black self-empowerment or gender.


Industry get-together

Since 2013, IFFF Dortmund+Köln has organised panel discussions and network meetings at the Berlinale in Berlin.



IFFF Dortmund+Köln collaborates with various different partners and institutions right throughout the year.



IFFF Dortmund+Köln sees cinema and film in a broader context. Artistic residencies, book publications and art workshops are among the festival’s regular projects happening right throughout the year.
