International Film Festival
Closing : 22nd February 2017
Festival: 24th - 26th March 2017
The festival has two elements. The
international part is based on a different theme each
year. For 2017 the theme is Passion
. We are looking for films,
that show passion, it doesn`t matter if in a club, or in a team, in a job or even in a hobby.
There is also a celebration of one-minute movies to which
only German film makers can send entries.
The festival takes place in Senftenberg which lies
roughly mid way between Berlin and Dresden. The
