FILMAKADEMIE BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG GOES FANTASY FILMFEST

 

Over time, Fantasy Filmfest has regularly shown graduation films by students. This year, the festival would like to offer itself as a forum for discussion with regards to the state of German genre cinema. What are the visions and future plans of young filmmakers? Under which conditions are their films produced and how well does German genre cinema fare in the international market? We invite festival visitors, film fans to see for themselves, over a free selection of films and following conversation with their creators.
