Events Unerhört Music Film Festival

Germany's only music film festival culminates in the Music Film Contest at the Reeperbahn Festival.​​​​​​

Lima Grita / UNERHÖRT Music Film Fest

UNERHÖRT! Music Film Festival Hamburg

Over five consecutive days, UNERHÖRT! music film festival screens two dozen current music documentaries. As part of Reeperbahn Festival, the best works are awarded the Reeperbahn Festival Music Film award. Ticket holders for Reeperbahn Festival can make up their own minds: they gain free entry to all screenings at the three participating cinemas. 

Stars and Newcomers

Featured films all have one thing in common: a backstage pass to the most fascinating international music artists. Their range is described perfectly by the two meanings of the German word unerhört: 'outrageous' and, with a bit of imagination, 'unheard of'. On the one hand, there are the movies about international rock legends who cause a stir wherever they go. On the other hand, audiences will be exposed to underground artists that have yet to be discovered by European audiophiles.

Note: Although the 2020 programme will be entirely online, it will also be much larger than previous years. Organizers are also planning unique ways for viewers to interact with filmmakers and musicians, including online Q&As and prerecorded interviews.

10-13 November, 2021
