29th Hamburg Film Festival

Film culture in Hamburg's cinemas

Hamburg Film Festival will take place for the 29th time in 2021. Every year in autumn it thrills countless cinema fans in ten days on ten screens with around 70 national and international feature and documentary films as world premieres, European premieres or German premieres.

In ten permanent and further annually changing sections, the programme spectrum ranges from sophisticated art house films to innovative mainstream cinema. But not only cinematic gems, audience successes and world premieres can be seen and enjoyed in large format: Participating actors and directors honour the Hanseatic city and make the film experience even more vivid by answering questions and talking about motives and shooting experiences.

The 28th Filmfest Hamburg - "small but (very) fine"

Despite the current situation, Filmfest Hamburg will take place again this year - but not without restrictions. Around 70 different films in nine sections await you at the 28th edition in five festival cinemas in the Hanseatic city. In order to counteract the space restrictions imposed by distance regulations, streaming tickets will be available this year depending on the seating capacity of the respective cinema. In addition, around 50 films from this year's program will be available for viewing on the new Streamfest Hamburg platform. 

In order to create a sense of community in spite of all hygiene measures, this year there is an open-air meeting place: the outside area of the Turmbar on the Moorweide is available for this purpose. The supporting program has also been adapted. For example, question rounds, talks and panels will take place mostly as digital live discussions. 

Further information on the 28th Hamburg Film Festival 2020 will be available here soon.
