Film Programme 2021

The programme for the 50th edition of Sehsüchte has been decided: 2076 minutes of film, spread over 107 films from 35 countries, which we will show in the main programme, at focus production, in the showcase as well as in the children’s and youth section.

Diverse and hopeful: the 50th Sehsüchte program

To curate a festival program, it is not enough to divide the submitted films into good and bad. Rather, it requires a festival-specific philosophy of selecting and relating.

Sehsüchte Jury

Meet the Sehsüchte Jury 2021

Sehsüchte is awarding the sehsüchte flame in 11 categories. We left the selection of the winners to a first-class jury, which met virtually in March.

“Taste is totally different.”

Every year, Sehsüchte appears in a new look. One more reason to take a closer look at the design and its special features. Design duo Birte Rauch and Carl-Friedrich Richter in an interview with Eva Lütticke from the Sehsüchte team.
