Announcement Festival Trailer Sehsüchte 2022

To all Filmuni students: Send us your ideas and produce the Sehsüchte Trailer 2022!


Sufficient budget for a 30-45 second trailer and active support during production. The trailer will be shown in cinemas as well as on public transport in Berlin and Brandenburg, before each film block during the festival as well as online and on the platforms of our media partners.


A festival trailer that excites people for Sehsüchte as well as visually reflects and interprets our festival motto and design.

Our motto this year is Radiance. After an unusual yet successful anniversary edition, Sehsüchte is looking ahead. Under the motto Radiance, the festival puts its faith in the untamable radiance of a new generation of filmmakers – and in the festival as their catalyst.

As every year, Sehsüchte gives a home to daring, young cinema in its 51st edition. New, as yet unheard ideas, perspectives and attitudes are to be carried from Babelsberg into the world and illuminate the festival landscape as a shimmering sea of radiance. We place our full conviction in the power of the cinema screen to capture the future of film and to immerse the audience in its brilliance. Fifty years lie behind us, many more ahead. The flame is blazing, and now Sehsüchte 2022 carries its radiance wherever it takes us.

You can see how this was done in the past on our YouTube channel. There you can find all trailers of the last years.

Covid: Please note that your ideas should also be able to be realized with the potential Corona measures and the hygiene concept of the film university.
