Retrospective — 2021

This year we walked through Wahren. On July 22 and 23, 2021, between 250 and 300 people met at the Viaduct in Wahren to come together and watch the first short film in continuous loop. In three blocks, we showed fourteen short films which have been chosen from 150 submissions to the theme "inside - outside".
We projected onto the firewall of an LWB apartment building in Hopfenbergstraße and the back of the imposing, historic tower of the Town Hall in Wahren. The third station was in two different locations on both evenings: Friday ended in the courtyard of the Pittlerwerke, where an undisturbed film screening would not have been possible on Saturday evening due to a musical event that took place at short notice. Thanks to a permission of the Grünflächenamt (Parks Department) Leipzig, the last film block could be shown on Saturday evening on a large meadow on the northern shore of the Auensee just behind the small train station. Each of the evenings ended with a short film discussion with the directors present - thanks to all the filmmakers who joined us!
Even at the first station it became obvious that people from all parts of the city and from completely different age groups were present, including residents from Wahren. We were particularly pleased about this diversity, since one of our goals with the Kurzfilmwanderung is to initiate encounters and dialogue.

A big thank you also goes to all participants - despite the large number of people, at the end there were hardly more than two scraps of paper left behind and a lost peanut flip. We are happy about this appreciation and are already looking forward to next year!
