Mission Statement

Every summer, the international FILMFEST MÜNCHEN celebrates the best international and German films of the year.

We love films, and we love cinema. We share this love with our enthusiastic audiences as well as with the German and international film industry. FILMFEST MÜNCHEN is the place for anyone who wants to be moved by films, who wants to get to know the people behind them, who wants to network in relaxed surroundings as well as strengthen established ties.

Our aim is to promote cultural exchange and broad-mindedness. FILMFEST MÜNCHEN stands for cosmopolitan principles and diversity and explicitly rejects any kind of exclusion or marginalization. In Munich, film artists from around the world have a platform for the issues that motivate them and the stories they wish to relate.

Around 500 film screenings and numerous other events invite visitors to become acquainted with new content, new technology, and current trends — but above all to interact with people and exchange ideas.

FILMFEST MÜNCHEN sees itself as a host whose doors are wide open to everyone.

Last but not least, the international FILMFEST MÜNCHEN has its eye on the next generation of children and youth, broadening their horizons, conveying that cinema is an experience, and providing both educational value and fun. That's our motto at Kinderfilmfest and our youth event.
