Here's the new Winter Term Program!
With a good bottle of wine as that became a habit we thought about what could fit in the fall and winter, cinematically speaking. The pondering came to an end, ans so came the wine bottle. We now hold in our hands a very nice program, with elegant density, spicy finish and, as always, the classic tingling cinema pleasure.

Get out the picnic blanket, it's open air cinema again! And once again we are ahead of the game and get the award for the first open air cinema of the year in Karlsruhe in advance. On two weekends in June we will show films, each representing one genre of science fiction film history: Utopia, Dystopia and last but not least: Comedy! We are looking forward to you.
Program Summer Term 2023
After a long renovation break, the Blaue Salon opens its freshly painted doors again for the summer semester. From April to July, we always show a short pre-film on the last Monday of the month (mnemonic: Le-Mo-De-Mo), as well as a feature film in analog 16mm film projection.
Construction at Blauer SalonRead more
The cinema is being rebuilt. In 2017, the order went out to the building construction office, and now, about 5 years later, something is happening. We are happy! The control room is being enlarged, new projection windows, new ventilation, new sound system. The building construction office is working hard and we can only wait and see when it can go on again.

The 30th anniversary film festival was great, thanks to all who were there! We'll clean up briefly and then we'll see you again on the green lawn with the colorful chairs for the Open Air cult sneak nights starting July 29.
30 Years HfG Film Festival
From July 12 - July 16, 2022, a film festival will be held to celebrate the 30th anniversary of our university by presenting a colorful selection of HfG films. Each day, a film from the Zeitbild Lab (2019-2022) will be shown, along with a selection of films from 30 years of HfG film history. In addition to the filmmakers, other guests will be present to tell us about 30 years of HfG.
We are very very much looking forward to the 30th anniversary of the HfG Film Festival. To increase the anticipation even more here is a trailer that shows a little bit in which direction it will go! Thanks for the trailer, Knut!
Retrospective Chantal Akerman
In collaboration with film professor Serpil Turhan, it has long been an affair of the heart to bring the work of Chantal Akerman to the people! We are very pleased to be able to show some of the Belgian filmmaker's films in the Blue Salon this semester.
