Film festivals bring not only new, exciting and unique films into our orbit, but also the creative minds behind them. It is exactly this aspect which Sehsüchte has passionately committed itself to for the past half century. As the biggest international student film festival in Europe, it has taken on a special place in the festival landscape. The next generation of filmmakers across the globe are given a platform to present their work to a broad audience and make contacts within the industry. Sehsüchte has always seen itself as a space for networking, a showcase of cultural diversity and a celebration of film and continues to do so today.
From the 21st – 25th July 2021, Sehsüchte will take place for the 50th time, planned and implemented entirely by students of the Film University Babelsberg KONRAD WOLF. This upcoming anniversary is, of course, a time for special celebration. Over the course of five days we aim to set new impulses and create a unique experience around films, workshops and media innovations.
