Retrospective — 2020

In 2020, we took new paths.
A Kurzfilmwanderung with a smaller audience and in compliance with hygiene regulations took us not to three or four locations in one neighbourhood, but to different places all over Leipzig. Instead of wandering with the audience, our technology and the films in one evening, we wandered with our short film programme to the audience on ten evenings. Between 9 and 18 September, we visited ten different locations: from backyards, a spillway and gardens to accommodation for refugees and socio-cultural centres, we were able to show the films in exciting and beautiful spaces and, despite the smaller audience, we were able to watch short films with many people at the end.
For all those who could not be there, there was an online stream of the programme on two evenings. We would like to thank all the places that opened their doors and gates to us and invited us in. And of course to the filmmakers who also let us show their films at the extended Kurzfilmwanderung.
