#FFDDathome #sofascreening from 13 to 18 April 2021

From 13 to 18 April we would have celebrated the 33 FILMFEST DRESDEN together with you. Like last year, we unfortunately have to postpone this and now hope to welcome you from 13 to 18 July. But once again we don't want the original festival week to pass by without short films and invite you again to the #FFDDathome #sofascreening on our social media channels as well as here on the website.

Here you will find all film screenings as well as Zoom Talk Links to join in.

Film Screenings

From 13 to 18 April we will "screen" a Family Short from our Kids and Youth Programmes daily at 3 pm.

At 8 pm, we will follow with a Festival Short from our Competitions as well as Special Programmes of FFDD21.

Family Shorts 6: KIKI THE FEATHER by Julie Rembauville and Nicolas Biano-Levrin

Kiki the canary only knows his cage and the old lady who feeds him. He dreams of flying with the free birds from outside. When at last the door of the cage stays open, he escapes and discovers the big outside where it’s necessary to know how to fly. Finally, being a free bird, it’s scary.

Festival Shorts 6: CANCELLED by Nina Hoffmann (Regional Competition, FFDD21)

CANCELLED is an AnimaDoc about a new intensity of longings during the first lockdown in Germany.
