Statement by the festival management on the justified criticism of the almost exclusively white members of the Sehsüchte juries.
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 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.
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.
