We are very pleased that in the 32nd year of the Filmtage - planned and organised completely online - we can now offer you a little more "live" cinema: In addition to the Metropolis, there will be programmes at the Passage and 3001 again this year! All films are available both in the cinema and online, so you can choose - and if the cinema is sold out, you'll certainly be lucky online.

For your individual planning, here is our festival schedule - indispensable for navigating your way through the individual festival days. You can look up events and films by their location, and find details including the timetable, the screening languages, and where to find (German) sign language support.

two weeks of fantastic movies!

After the opening on 19 October we will start with a hand picked film programme: in the first week 19-24 October in the cinema and online, in the second week from 25-31 October with further online screenings.

opening live in the cinema and online!

Our opening this year will be a parallel spectacle and a small marathon for the team and for Monika Treut: We will "open" in all three cinemas. At the same time, the opening film will be streamed.
