FxM: The MusicFilmFestival

FxM: The MusicFilmFestival

Listen to see - this is the motto of this years MusicFilmFestival FxM Film meets Music, where seven filmconcerts from BIFF will take place for the first time. From 2001 on the focus on music and film at the BIFF has grown. And from the start until now the Staatsorchester Braunschweig have been the partner hosting the big filmconcerts of the BIFF, who travel around Germany together. Under the new directorship at the Staatstheater The FxM is pointedly different from smaller silent filmfestival through showing not only the classics but also recent films in connection with new musictrends during a liveperformance. Musicdocumentaries, musicvideos and a discursive plattform with speeches and talks complete the programme. Furthermore the art exhibit regarding Irmin Schmidt, who is the mastermind behind the Band CAN, will be part of the festival. A total of eight of his films, a concert and a talk about his film will be dedicated to him during the event. a new opportunity to make a small festival out of the seperate musical and filmic events of the BIFF presented itself. This festival includes not only the Staatstheater/Staatsorchester Braunschweig, but also the Scharoun-Theater Wolfsburg as a partner.
