Evaluation Because of its modest size, this festival, dedicated exclusively to German films, offers one of the most pleasant atmospheres in the German festival scene. The number of premieres is limited and the press coverage is mostly national. The films are chosen according to their theater and marketing value. Workshops with focus on national and international theater exposure. The festival awards the Best Film Title - a unique prize in Germany.
