From 23rd to 27th September 2020 Sehsüchte is going into its 49th round!

With this year’s motto 20:20 Vision we want to take an undisguised look at the world. This is reflected in our international film programme with 116 films from 30 countries.

We present new visions in the form of extraordinary production achievements in our section “Focus Production” and exciting concepts and scripts in the section “Schreibsüchte”. With the “360°” programme, Sehsüchte also focuses on new technologies and the innovative narrative styles associated with them. The films of “Future Kids & Teens” show visions that are explicitly aimed at a young audience. Past visions of the future in the field of tension between collective and individual are explored in the Retrospektive.

We are also pleased to welcome the “Steve Tisch School of Film and Television” this year with its own showcase of their work, thus stimulating dialogue with young filmmakers from Israel.

With workshops, panels and events, the accompanying programme extends this year’s motto beyond the films.

The festival itself is also breaking new ground with this edition. Due to the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sehsüchte is taking place as a hybrid festival online and offline for the first time. In order to keep the risk of infection as low as possible, we, the festival team, have worked out a suitable hygiene concept.

You can find the entire festival programme here. And soon you will be able to secure your tickets for Sehsüchte online.

We are looking forward to a great festival week with you!
