Evaluation This festival of German films is comparable in significance and structure to the Lünen Film Festival, but looks back on a considerably longer tradition. Biberach presents a cross section of new German productions. Of interest for distributors for the opportunity to audience-test their purchases. Q & A at all screenings, panel discussion with all filmmakers.
