Time and again, cinema has been declared dead – especially in the pandemic year 2020. But cinema is alive! But how does it go on? As part of the Filmfestival Münster, we want to shed light on how cinema is changing in three discussion forums with different focuses.
A look back at the festival’s 40-year history: as part of the “Youth Curated” project, four young adults have looked at selected short films from past festivals and picked out their favorites. This program also features the short documentary “New Film Generation”: eight filmmakers between the ages of 10 and 14 have embarked on a cinematic quest to discover what makes the medium of cinema so special.
With the film series “Kino aufs Land” (Cinema in the Countryside), the Filmwerkstatt Münster is touring the Münsterland region and will be stopping off at three different locations from September 22 to 24: Wettringen, Vadrup and Darup. In addition to current short films from the festival selection, selected productions from the region are also in the bag.
The film and cinema landscape has included in some funding regulations that films in Germany must be barrier-free. In a panel discussion, we would like to get into conversation with people from associations and with disabilities to make their experiences and perspectives on the accessibility of films and cinemas visible.
Watching short films through self-generated energy thanks to muscle power. Together with the bicycle cinema we ride through Münster. We will stop at selected places and turn the walls into projection surfaces.
