Sandwich Talks - filmmakers in conversation

Moderated by members of the selection committees, each Sandwich Talk is dedicated to a different focus and picks up on thematic or stylistic tendencies of this year's competition. More information will be published here soon. Admission free, in English


Exhibition opening: Where do we come from - where are we going?

Wed, 6.4. 20:00 * Kunsthaus Raskolnikow

Caroline Monnet, who is also curating this year's FOKUS QUÉBEC, is not only an exceptionally successful filmmaker, she is also one of Canada's hottest artists at the moment. In addition to her own identity in the field of tension between indigenous and European roots, her work focuses on the (post-) colonial dynamics between North America and Europe as well as the representation of First Nation communities and the survival of their cultures in today's society. A selection of current video installations will be shown. Free admission, in German

Masterclass with Samuel Girma

Sat, 9.4. 16:00 * Schauburg Chaplin

Samuel Girma is a film and art curator, community organiser, activist and co-founder of the anti-racist, intersectional and feminist platform Black Queers Sweden. The masterclass will give an insight into Samuel's work as well as his perspective on queerness and blackness. Born and raised in Ethiopia, Samuel moved to Sweden at the age of 13, a move that has greatly influenced his view of Blackness and the experiences associated with migration. Much of Samuel's art and writing emanates from and focuses on the experiences of Black bodies. Free admission, in English
