Media Coverage mostly German and regional media coverage

Evaluation With its roots in the former East German national documentary film festival, this has developed into an interesting venue in the Eastern part of Germany. This festival favors younger, unknown filmmakers who deal, among other things, with borderline questions on film as a medium and other current issues. Press coverage and audience is mostly limited to Germany and the region itself. Provides a special forum for productions from Eastern Europe.
