Locations

The IFFMH will take place in the cinemas in Mannheim and Heidelberg - a decision dating back to 2019. For us, this is a return to the cities and to the audience, i.e. to you, and a commitment to cinema culture. Because that's what the films we show are made for – for cinema.

We are very happy to have won the following cinemas as partners for our festival. Without them, the IFFMH would not exist in its current form.

Atlantis

The Atlantis Kino has a long tradition in Mannheim's cultural life: even before its conversion into a cinema in the 1950s, the premises served as a concert hall for many years. An extraordinary stroke of luck, which is also noticeable in the excellent acoustics. Since 1982, the Atlantis has been operating as a programme cinema with a curated selection of films. The Atlantis and the IFFMH have been partners for three decades.

Not barrier-free. The cinema hall can be reached by a stair lift. There are three steps in the entrance area without a lift.

Cinema Quadrat e.V.

The municipal Cinema Quadrat was founded in 1971 by the later directors of the then Mannheim Film Week Fee Vaillant and Hanns Maier. Even then, the cinema thought of itself as an alternative offer to the cinema landscape of its time. The first film that was shown in 1971 was the winning film of the International Film Week of 1971, El camino hacia la muerte del viejo reales (Viejo Reales’ Long Way Journey to Death) by Gerardo Vallejo.

CinemaxX Mannheim & Cineplex Planken

In 2020 not only the Cineplex Planken in the centre of the Mannheim Squares will return as a partner of the IFFMH. The CinemaxX Mannheim, also run by the Spickert family, is from now on one of the venues of the festival as well. Both cinemas offer enough space for a New Film Experience and also one of Baden-Wuerttemberg’s largest screens.

Gloria Filmtheaterbetriebe

The Gloria cinemas in Heidelberg have a long, distinguished history spanning over 100 years – the first films were screened in the Gloria as early as 1905. The Gloria cinemas were one of the festival’s most prominent venues in Heidelberg between 1994 and 2006. Starting 2020, they are once again one of the IFFMH’s tentpoles in the UNESCO City of Literature.

Karlstorkino – Medienforum Heidelberg e.V.

The Karlstorkino was founded in 1990 as a municipal cinema and has already received numerous awards, e.g. the award as of one Germany’s best municipal cinemas is one of them. It was one of the IFFMH’s cores in Heidelberg until 2005. Starting from 2020, the Karlstorkino is once again one of the festival’s venues.
