Open Air Cinema

Save the Date: OPEN AIR CINEMA in front of the HfG from June 20 - 24, 2024. This year we will once again storm out onto the green meadow and indulge in the balmy June nights at the HfG Open Air Cinema. We thank the open-air cinema god that he exists and invite you to 5 days of festival atmosphere with music, short films, drinks and some of the most beautiful things (films) that the seventh art has produced in the last 100 years.



Where is the Open Air Cinema ?

As the title suggests, the HfG OPEN AIR CINEMA is located in front of the HfG, more precisely on the meadow between the HfG/ZKM and the Federal Prosecutor's Office.

Where Can I Get Tickets?

Admission to our open-air cinema is free, there are no tickets in this sense, you only need to reserve a seat and the rule here is: first come, first served! So be there in good time!

What's Going On before the Film starts?

This year, too, there will be a lot going on on the lawn in front of the HfG long before the movie starts. From 8 pm, our bar and food team will be giving it their all, with drinks, snacks, fresh grilled food (all vegan too), popcorn, nachos and much more. In addition, our cool DJ team will introduce you to the world of movies every day, a kind of auditory warm-up from 8 pm! And as soon as dusk sets in, there are experimental short films to watch, presented live on the lawn by our 16mm projectionist, updated daily and accompanied by our DJ team as the mood takes you.
