After an unusual yet successful anniversary edition, Sehsüchte looks ahead. Under the motto radiance, the festival puts its faith in the irrepressible radiance of a new generation of filmmakers – and in the festival as their catalyst.
As every year, Sehsüchte gives a home to courageous, young cinema in its 51st edition.
New, previously unheard ideas, perspectives and attitudes are to be carried from Babelsberg into the world and illuminate the festival landscape as a shimmering sea of light. We place our full conviction in the power of the cinema screen to capture the future of film already now and to immerse the audience in its splendor. Fifty years of leagues behind us, many more ahead. The flame is blazing, now Sehsüchte 2022 carries its glow wherever it takes us.
