Short on Film – Long in Pleasure
FRIENDS OF FILMFEST DRESDEN
The FRIENDS OF FILMFEST DRESDEN, newly founded in 2015, supports the festival together with many further partners in bringing international filmmakers and young talents to the capital city of Saxony and presenting the highly diverse Panorama programme annually.
In addition to the promotion of short film and the desire to increase the awareness among the general public for this cinematic form, Filmfest Dresden aims to establish a high-quality cultural programme in Dresden with an international reach and appeal. FILMFEST DRESDEN views itself as more than just a specialist event, but also as a festival for the general public, one that gives the audiences and the filmmakers opportunities to have contacts, discussions and exchanges with each other. The festival’s focus here underscores the self-image of the city of Dresden as a metropolis of culture open to the world.
