The festival is back in town - and finally we can offer a wide-ranging framework programme again. We will get into conversation with each other, intensify topics and we will be inspired. The festival traditionally opens with a silent film concert, at which the Braunschweig State Orchestra will present a very special composition this year. The grand awards ceremony on the festival Saturday will also surprise with something new. We are especially looking forward to two encounters with the winner of the EUROPA on Friday and Saturday. There will be intensive film discussions and panel talks on current debates. We look forward to a lively exchange. We look forward to seeing you!
