Euregion Film Festival 2022

For it's seventh edition, the Euregion Film Festival, stands strong once more. This year will put a spotlight on collaboration and co-production. Crossborder Film Conference, Euregion Film Pitch, Short Film Competition, special screenings, networking drinks and many more: discover international new talents, learn from experienced professionals, get to know each other and exchange. Regardless of politics, geography or languages, the film world is always advancing: no borders can limit us.

Take this opportunity to meet and learn from international makers: check films from all over the world, and have a chance to discuss them through our Q&A sessions and Filmmakers talks; broaden your horizons with our special networking events, and reach out to our guests and participants to spark new collaborations, make new friends and be creative together.
