30th Hamburg Film Festival

Film culture in Hamburg's cinemas

Filmfest Hamburg will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2022. Every year in the fall, it delights countless cinema fans over ten days on ten screens with around 70 national and international feature films and documentaries as world premieres, European premieres or German premieres.

As early as 1992, the first film festival was held in Hamburg. Exactly 11 years later, with Albert Wiederspiel taking office, the first MICHEL Children and Youth Film Festival took place in 2003.

This is what you can expect in 2022

True to the motto "Film festival for everyone - everywhere in Hamburg", around 3,000 national as well as international film productions have celebrated their world, European or German premiere to date. The festival has grown continuously, so that the number of visitors has increased more than tenfold since it began in 1992. The Fimfest offers a platform for cultural exchange and dialogue. Therefore, the majority of the films are presented personally by the filmmakers. The amount of events make Filmfest Hamburg an important meeting point that appeals to cinema enthusiasts and the film industry alike.

In 2022, Filmfest Hamburg will take place from September 29 to October 08. For the 30th edition, the event invites to the cinemas Abaton, Metropolis, Passage, CinemaxX Dammtor and the Studio-Kino. Also this year, a MICHEL Children and Youth Film Festival will take place.
