Fair & Green


A film festival is not only a place of presentation, reflection and exchange, but also bears responsibility––towards its own team, towards the filmmakers and artists it works with, but of course also towards all partners, the audience and the environment.

In the summer of 2019, we therefore set out to define a sustainable framework for an internationally oriented event like ours, and as a result imposed compliance rules on ourselves––with the aim of acting as transparently, respectfully, green and fairly as possible, both internally and externally.
Many of these points may sound self-evident, but they definitely are not in the field of independent cultural work—as we know from our own experience. That is why it was all the more important to establish these measures for ourselves and to initiate a change of perspective—ideally as a good example for many others as well.

What we mean by this can be found here in a rough overview and in detail in our compliance paper (PDF, 98 KB).
