We’re going online! 15.-20. June IFFF Dortmund+Köln throughout Germany

Many things are different in 2021. And Internationales Frauen* Film Fest Dortmund+Köln is no exception. Originally scheduled for April, it has also been forced to change plans and will now take place as an online event from 15 to 20 June 2021.

Following the live opening on 15 June, all films can be seen via the festival’s video-on-deman platform up to and including 20 June. 70 current international films, online discussions with guests from all corners of the globe, a video studio in the Dortmund festival office and audiences who can watch the films whenever it suits them for six days, without having to travel from all over Germany. For film fans in Germany (the programme is geoblocked), this will hopefully make up for the disappointment of not being able to meet and keep in touch with friends personally.

»We see our online programme as an opportunity to raise awareness of the film festival without being tied to a specific location, and in doing so expand our audience reach. Despite the adverse circumstances, we want to make the most of this opportunity – albeit in the full knowledge that online programmes cannot replace an in-person, live film festival, or at least can only do so to a degree.« (Maxa Zoller, artistic director)
