Gässli Film Festival


The Gässli Film Festival, so named because of its location in Gerbergässlein, is a nonprofit event, organized for young filmmakers in the Basel region. The aim is to inspire young people to make films and to give the film talents of tomorrow an opportunity to present their works to a wider audience. To this end, festival organizers invite an internationally renowned filmmaker to Basel to show his debut film and give the young people tips and inspiration for their future careers in filmmaking. There will be monetary and other prizes awarded to the best film of the festival, the best of Switzerland, the best music video, as well as a social-media audience prize and a youth prize. To learn more about the project, the program (including workshops, panels, and networking events), their success stories, how to participate, how to get there, or to just attend, visit their website.
All movies shown on the Gässli Openair Piazza are free of charge; however, if you want to be on the safe side, you can reserve a ticket (CHF 15), which is valid until 5 minutes before the beginning of the show. Festival all-access passes are CHF 50 and day passes are CHF 30.
