As a film festival team, we look back on a successful week. 15 filmmakers from the USA, Spain, France, Russia, Italy, Switzerland and Germany and Germany presented their films in Eberswalde and got into conversation with the audience. Most stayed several days and enjoyed experiencing the city of Eberswalde and its beautiful surroundings. In a time marked by conflicts, war and fears, we enjoyed the excellent films as well as the meeting of the people, their empathy and mutual attention.

We thank Carsten Wegener, Marie-Elsa Drelon and many other musicians for the musical accompaniment of the program.

With about 1,500 visitors, we were again able to reach a larger audience compared to the last two years, so that the possibility of following up next year on the response before the Corona restrictions is tangible.

We would like to thank all supporters, partners, sponsors, patrons and our guests for their trust and for the festival week we created together.
