We’ll meet in cinema!

Shortly before the start of the Festival, individual screenings are possible now in cinemas. We use this opportunity to present some highlights from our programme on the big screen. From 16. – 20. June the Festival offers six screenings in Dortmund’s traditional cinema Schauburg. This means that Dortmunders can see films in the cinema even before the nationwide opening.

The programme includes Quo vadis, Aida?, Petite Maman and The Man Who Sold His Skin,–  all three part of the International Feature Film Competition – the documentary Becoming Animal (Focus »The Connection: Between Plants, Humans and Other Animals«) and the Double Feature of Gendernauts & Genderation as part of the section desired! film lust & queer. The double feature will be presented in the presence of director Monika Treut.

You may find the exact dates (date & time) of the screenings via the timetable or on the corresponding filmpages (see links above). Please Note: Almost all films will be available online on our VoD-Platform.
