Guest Information

Many FILMFEST DRESDEN venues as well as the guest center are located in the colorful and diverse district of Dresden Neustadt with its numerous restaurants, cafés, boutiques and clubs.

The traditional SCHAUBURG is an integral part of Dresden's cultural scene and has been the festival cinema of FILMFEST DRESDEN since the 1990's. The SCHAUBURG is the perfect place to start a discovery tour on foot or by bike through Dresden and the festival programme. As a green oasis to relax, the nearby Alaunpark and the Dresden Elbe meadows are ideal.

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

Our partner hotel ParkInn is also located in the immediate vicinity of the Elbe River. Other venues such as the Programmkino Ost and the Neumarkt in the unique, baroque Dresden Old Town are easily accessible by bus and train.

Guest Office

The Guest Office provides filmmakers, professionals and media representatives with information about accreditation and their stay at FILMFEST DRESDEN. 

During the festival week it is the place to collect your accreditation ID  and receive further information on the festival programme with its various film screenings and other events as well as the festival locations.
