Over the course of ten days, around 120 films and documentaries from 11 different sections will be shown across cinemas in the Hanseatic city. At FilmFest Hamburg, cineastes, celebrities and movie stars will once again walk the red carpet to watch exclusive premieres of some of the most anticipated German, European and international films. Contributions range from arthouse to television and mainstream films.
During the festival, a number of different awards will be handed to the most innovative and compelling films, including the MICHEL, the NDR Young Talent, and Hamburg Film Critic Award, as well as the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung award for the best political film. In the past, the coveted Douglas Sirk Award was handed to international stars like Clint Eastwood, Jodie Foster, Aki Kaurismäki and Jim Jarmusch among others. In addition, FilmFest Hamburg offers the perfect conditions for a series of film-related discussions and meetings for representatives of the movie industry.
