Guest of honour 2018: screenwriter and filmmaker Wolfgang Kohlhaase


„A place which doesn’t lack in beauty and a programme that doesn’t lack in meaning. If watching TV constantly consumes your evenings, then here you’ll find a type of watching closely which applies to films and faces. Culture as a conversation, a practicing of neigbourliness, as a bridge between one place and the world.”


Wolfgang Kohlhaase | Script Writer and Film Maker

International Encounters

“It’s incredibly pleasing that such an exciting film festival has established itself so close to Berlin. I’m  there regularly with the whole family and the mixture between international films, interesting guests and all within the most beautiful of settings thrills us anew every year.”


Ronald Zehrfeld |  Actor


“The liveliest exchange that one could wish for!”


Volker Schlöndorff | Film Maker
