Over the course of ten days, dozens of films from a variety of countries and cultures are screened in cinemas all across the Hanseatic city. At FilmFest Hamburg, filmmakers, celebrities and movie stars walk the red carpet to watch exclusive premieres of some of the most anticipated German, European and international films. Selections range from art house and documentary films to television and short films to mainstream films and Oscar submissions.

During the festival, a number of awards are presented 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 given 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 panels, discussions and meetings for representatives of the film industry.
