Freiburg Film Forum: Africa / America / Asia / Oceania
The freiburger film forum has been showing current productions from Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania since 1985, and it continues to make a major contribution to transcultural discourse through its choice of themes. Its workshop atmosphere and moderate size lend the festival a certain intensity and allow for conversations about film that are attractive for directors from all over the world. As an added bonus, the students’ platform also presents the opportunity to view a selection of international debut films by talented directors.
FOCUS USA: AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL
In cooperation with the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar in New York, the freiburger film forum will be showing a selection of historical and contemporary documentary films that actively engage with social reality in North America. In light of current political developments and the general global shift to the right, the freiburger film forum will be looking at not only the people who are affected, but also different approaches to and models of taking a stand against increasing xenophobia and social injustice.
