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!
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.
From June 02 to 19, 2022, the graduation exhibition "Graduation Studio" will be held in the atriums of the HfG. In the Blue Salon there will be a show of diploma films on four dates.
Where is the key to the Blue Salon? For almost two years we were no longer in it - forced break thanks to renovation. But now it's starting again, there is cinema in the Blauer Salon again. We are very much looking forward to finally watching movies together with people again and talking shop over a cool drink! Who will be there?
Early for the start of spring, in anticipation of the 30th anniversary of the HfG and for all those who do not know what to do in the lecture-free period: The new edition of the HfG Videothek. 30 new films about fun, seriousness, knowledge and art. We hope there is something for everyone!
For Christmas, our streaming offer again includes over 30 new and old films by students and teachers. A colorful potpourri of documentary, experimental, feature films, short, long, colorful, black and white, funny, sad, there should be something for everyone. We wish you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and Happy Streaming!
