Bildrausch Filmfest Basel
Bildrausch is an intimate and innovative international film festival that will take place in the heart of Basel for the 11th time. The emphasis is on films as an art form, with a focus on cinematic quality, the pleasure of visual expression, and the art of telling stories in a new way. The festival will include a series of special screenings that are complemented by an eclectic supporting program of conversations with filmmakers, panel discussions, lectures, workshops, artistic interventions, and concerts. The direct exchange between filmmakers and the audience is a key feature on the festival’s agenda. This includes the “Filmmakers’ Dinner,” where directors and spectators sit together to share a meal and join in lively conversations.
The international competition “Cutting Edge” is at the heart of the Bildrausch festival, with about a dozen carefully selected works. An international jury will award a prize of CHF 5,000 to the best film at the festival, as well as the Bildrausch ring to its creator.
For this year’s 11th edition of the Bildrausch Filmfest, Basel honors the Dutch-Peruvian filmmaker Heddy Honigmann with a tribute, showing four of her cinematic milestones from the years 1988-1999.
The program also includes a focus topic, "Wound/Wonder," that includes four diverse films that share a deep longing for integrity and devotion to life. Visit their German/English website to learn more about the films that will be presented.
