sehsüchte is the largest international student film festival in Europe. As well as an audience-centric festival and meeting point for upcoming international filmmakers.
Every year, sehsüchte is a centre of attention for filmmakers from all over the world. Our goal is not only to offer young, upcoming filmmakers a forum for their films, but also to stimulate exchange amongst each other, as well as with top professionals from the film and media industries. Over a hundred films by young filmmakers, panel discussions and master classes, a diverse supporting program consisting of professional workshops, parties and other events: sehsüchte offers many chances for intercultural exchange.
At the same time, sehsüchte is an audience-centered event. It appeals with the open contact between viewers and filmmakers. During six eventful festival days, exciting cinematic discoveries can be made while there are also many opportunities for mutual exchange and contact among filmmakers, professionals, and the audience like no other.
Panel discussions and workshops invite everyone to participate, and the legendary sehsüchte parties have you dance until dawn – a supporting program with such diversity and a warm atmosphere that no desires are left unfulfilled.
