FFDD20: Hybdrid Events
This special year, for the first time, we are broadcasting selected events from the supporting programme live on our website and our Facebook page in parallel:
Sandwich Talks - meet the film-makers
Wed-Fri, 5 pm each National Competition, 7 pm each International Competition
A film talk as a treat in between? No, by no means should the talk or the sandwich be gobbled up quickly. In the Sandwich Talks, directors* report on the films shown
Films from the National and International Competition will talk in detail about their work and answer questions from the audience. Sandwiches are served to satisfy not only the thirst for knowledge but also hunger.
In German (National Competition) or English (International Competition)
Panel: Gender Talks
Thu, 4 pm
Diversity, gender justice and equality are not only an issue in the context of the film industry through Pro Quote Film or #MeToo. As a glance at the FILMFEST DRESDEN programme reveals, short films also deal with gender constructions and gender identities. The panel discussion Gender Talks offers a framework for discussing ways of presenting gender in film and making diversity visible. What normative ideas are contained in film images?
What limits do filmmakers reach when negotiating gender constructions? What preconditions are needed in the film industry to make diverse forms of representation more visible?

Panel: What's the Point of Premiere Status?
Fri, 12 o'clock
Actually, if it weren't for the complicated issue of premieres, you would like to be able to register your film anywhere without any problems. Marija Milovanovic, curator at VIS Vienna Shorts and managing director of Lemonade Films, tries to shed some light on the situation and discusses the (in)sense of the whole thing with the victims and winners of the "Premiere Policy".
