"Celebrating Films"?

We invite you to truly celebrate films!

November is coming!

And then for eleven days, you will have opportunity to take a deeper look at the world-wide spectrum of the truly individual cinema…

Maybe with some character?

There are so many films out there – and new ones arrive every day. But why do so many of them lack character? We offer films with plenty…

Or with style?

Have you been wanted to see a film that is truly different than other films? One that is not predictable and exchangeable and some feels like something you’ve already seen? Then we have something for you…

Do you want to be taken seriously?

Do you sometimes have the feeling that films treat you as if you were stupid – with simplistic characters and formulaic storylines? Well, we have a few alternatives for you…

Tomorrow’s stars today

We give you a chance to experience the work of directors that are on their way to fame. And you can say you were there when they showed their first film.

Figured out the end, right at the beginning?

Do you like films where you know how the story is going to end in the first five minutes? We don’t.

Want to really experience something?

The only way to really experience different cultures is to submerse yourself in them. We give you that opportunity for travel costs of less that ten Euro per country!


Would you like to take a look at what we have to offer? It’s an experience, we promise. We’re quite sure: if you come once, you’ll want to come back for more.

Welcome to the 63rd International Filmfestival Mannheim-Heidelberg from 06 – 16 November!
