Evaluation The festival regards itself as one of the most important international showcases for student films. Engaging but rather small selection of student works, screened at the cozy atmosphere of the Munich Filmmuseum. It offers a good setting for meeting the next generation of international filmmakers and mingling with some prominent figures of the regional film scene.
