Our program offers cinematic encounters with the directors of the films, world premieres as well as German premieres of international titles. After most screenings, there are moderated film discussions about the backgrounds and artistic realization of the films. An overview of all guests and scheduled film talks can be found below.



THE FOLLOWING HIGHLIGHTS ARE PLANNED:

Homage: Jeanine Meerapfel

This year, the Jewish Film Festival Berlin | Brandenburg is dedicating a tribute to the director and current president of the Academy of Arts Berlin, showing seven of her works made between 1980 and today. Precisely because Meerapfel's films are still distinguished by their great topicality today, two of her films will be shown together with more recent films that deal with related themes. In this way, we will bring the films and, following the screenings, the filmmakers Aysun Bademsoy with ON THE OUTSKIRTS (2006) and Sharon Ryba-Kahn with DISPLACED (2020) into conversation.
