Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers


FF Muenster

From October 4th to 8th 2017 the Filmfestival Münster takes place for the 17th time. Three competitions in the feature and short film sections, carefully selected side programs, media art exhibitions, film workshops for children and young adolescents as well as a symposium addressing alternative ways of filmmaking and Films from the Countryside are part of the program.

The oldest competitive festival in Westphalia, presented by the Filmwerkstatt Münster since 1981, has become firmly established within the festival scene over the last 36 years. Because of the warm and personal atmosphere and the closeness between filmmakers and the enthusiastic audience, it is held in high esteem. Special attention is turned to young talents – numerous filmmakers presented their early works at the Filmfestival Münster or won awards for the first time in their career here.

In the European Feature Film Competition, eight feature films compete for the award for best directing (endowed with 5,000 Euro) which is awarded by an international jury.
The traditional Short Film Competition has ever since the first festival addressed filmmakers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
The section Focus NL features contemporary films from the Netherlands and is unique in all of Germany.


Turkish debut feature film „Çogunluk“ (Majority) wins award for best director

The Filmfestival Münster 2011 awards the Turkish director Seren Yüce for his film „Çogunluk“ (Majority) with the jury award for best director in the European Feature Film Competition, endowed with Euro 7,500.
The raw and authentic „family film“ and desperate „love story“, written and directed by Fatih Akin’s former assistant director premiered at the film festival in Venice in 2010 and was honored there with the Luigi De Laurentiis Award for the best debut feature film.
The international jury of the Filmfestival Münster, the Dutch actor Egbert-Jan Weeber („Bollywood Hero“), German director Sven Taddicken („Emma’s Bliss“), the film journalist Oliver Baumgarten and the producer Markus Halberschmidt („Armin“, Croatia’s Oscar-entry in 2006), decided unanimously to give out the award to Seren Yüce.

For the fourth time the European Feature Film Competition at the Filmfestival Münster is based upon a special topic. Eight films had been nominated for best direction on this year’s topic of „What keeps life together“. And the things that keep life together can vary in so many ways. In an era of crises, catastrophes and rapid changes to structures and society, the question of what keeps life together becomes increasingly more important. Is it your family, friendships and relationships in general, is it a sense of belonging, your personal view on the world, a sense of security or attitudes? Esteem, trust, professional achievement and acknowledgement – are they enough?
What gives life meaning seems to depend on how people find what sustains them emotionally, individually and within the community, how they experience trust, what desires they can make come true, what challenges they take on, whether they can leave a mark.
