I read one article that laid out the tell tale signs of what was going on with possible scams. However, I didn't need to read an negative article to become suspicious about what w...

LICHTER Filmfest Frankfurt International

LICHTER Film Festival Frankfurt International is the programmatic title of the Frankfurt Film Festival, a festival that places particular emphasis on cinematic elements that are otherwise neglected in everyday film and television. For one week in March, the moving image is at the center of the cultural scene in the Rhine-Main region. This film festival has its roots in the local film industry and presents its achievements on a grand scale. It features films from around the world as well and thus represents the growing internationalism of the region and the great diversity found in world cinema today.

LICHTER is a product of the local film scene and was founded in 2008 by a group of young film directors. It has since evolved from an event put on by a small group of committed people that worked in an improvised theater to a highlight of the regional cultural scene that attracts a diverse and expanding audience. Our goal is to build on this and host a unique film festival that brings the region’s creative energy and an interntional audience together.

LICHTER, along with showcasing an excellent and diverse program on the big screen, is a highlight for Frankfurt and the entire Rhine-Main region. Films are shown throughout the region and we take cinema to places it normally doesn’t thrive, like in other cultural institutions and especially in unusual and forgotten places that we then incorporate into our films. LICHTER takes cinema out of its comfort zone and showcases it in a big way.

Our event program also offers workshops and discussions on all aspects of film, our LICHTER Art Award video competition, and a central location to kick back and enjoy a drink or talk with fellow festivalgoers.

Interesting mix of films with connection to the Frankfurt region, international films and video art. Curators pay more attention to the artistic value of the films than to the premiere status. The festival reaches out to the city and the region with several exhibitions, installations and performances. This year´s theme: Nature.

Sections: Feature-length Competition (Fiction, Documentaries), Short Film Competition, International Video Art Competition, Out of Competition, International Films, Retrospective, Special Screenings.
