FAIR FESTIVAL. We are particularly pleased with this brand new rating from the AG Festival Work in the ver.di union after this tough year. Thank you very much for that and many thanks to our great festival team for their assessment!

At the Dresden Film Festival, the FAIR FESTIVAL AWARD was awarded to a German film festival for the first time and the FAIR FESTIVAL rating was given five times. The prize and the ratings are about the »fairness performance of German film festivals«. For this purpose, festival workers were asked to assess their festivals using a survey in several categories such as contract, working conditions, communication, leadership, working atmosphere, participation, equal opportunities, equal treatment and remuneration and to rate them on a four-point scale from fair to unfair. The survey was conducted in 2020 by Prof. Dr. Skadi Loist and Sarah Herbst carried out a cooperation project between the Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf and the festival work group in ver.di.
