Please be aware of the current health and safety regulations. A face mask must be worn to enter the guest office. Hand disinfectant will be provided at all locations.

The guest office is at the disposal of filmmakers, professional guests and representatives of the press for information about accreditation and your stay at the 33rd FILMFEST DRESDEN. During the festival week, guests can obtain accreditation passes, information on the film and supporting programme, as well as information on the festival venues and other event locations in our guest centre.

Many FILMFEST DRESDEN venues are located not far from each other in Dresden's colourful and varied Neustadt district. The traditional Schauburg Cinema has been an integral part of Dresden's cultural scene for decades and has been the festival cinema of FILMFEST DRESDEN since the 1990's. Surrounded by the lively scene of Neustadt with its numerous restaurants, cafés, boutiques and clubs, the Schauburg is the perfect place to start your discovery tour of Dresden and the festival programme. The nearby Alaunpark and the Dresden Elbe meadows are ideal green oases to relax in.

The festival cinema Thalia is a venue and festival lounge in one and will be a popular meeting place for FILMFEST DRESDEN visitors every evening.

This year we are especially pleased about our cooperation with the Dresden "Filmnächte am Elbufer" and the exclusive opportunity to present parts of our programme on the big screen in front of the beautiful backdrop of Dresden's Old Town.

Our partner hotel is also located in the immediate vicinity. Other venues such as the Programmkino Ost, the Lingnerschloss or the Neumarkt Open Air can be reached by bus and train.
