Evaluation One of the most prominent German forums for the presentation of international high-quality film and television productions. Its location in Cologne, home of numerous German TV stations, has helped this event to develop into an important meeting place for the industry, whose national and international representatives also frequent the accompanying seminars and screenings. Programs that provide an above-average contribution to the development of form language in film and television, and/or are based on an unusual journalistic or historic contribution, and/or represent an outstanding program event; seminars about current topics in the television and film industry.
