Spot on, NRW!

Spot on, NRW! brings the Dortmund film scene together and showcases newly discovered talent. The work of Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts is shown equally alongside independent productions. The programme features current short films that will blow you away, enchant you and move you. Experimental and narrative, searching for something, documentary and sexy. The screening is presented by Freie Szene Film Dortmund, an emerging network. A get-together event will follow at Superraum.

The name Spot on, NRW! is a fitting tag. It represents a positive accolade for NRW. But directing a »spotlight« onto someone also means turning the beam round towards those often working behind the scenes.

We want to provide an unfiltered insight into what it really takes for women to compete and succeed in the film industry. Women producers and distributors who successfully work with female directors talk about who they are and what they do in a workshop discussion format. The chance to discuss and connect with experienced colleagues and producers enhances awareness for their own work and helps build networks.

The Shoot – KHM & IFFF Dortmund+Köln Award for Female Artists of the Academy of Media Arts Cologne is awarded within this section.
