Formula Mundi
Impact On Tomorrow

How do today’s actions influence YOUR future tomorrow?
Formula Mundi is an international film festival dealing with humanity’s consequences on its surroundings.
Its topic is inspired by the BUTTERFLY EFFECT: “The phenomenon whereby a minute localized change in a complex system can have large effects elsewhere.” According to this idea of chaos theory, a butterfly can flap its wings in Chicago and thousands of kilometers away a tornado occurs in Tokyo.

Climate change, wars, inequality, poverty, and religious conflicts are the main topics society struggles within this age. They are often associated negatively, therefore people tend to say that their voice alone wouldn´t make a change anyway. But viewed from a more optimistic perspective: A Choir is strong when many voices come together. One must take the first step and others will follow.
Every Individual can contribute his part to the future. Every individual´s action today can make an Impact On Tomorrow, may it be in a bad or good way, selfish or selfless.
We want to encourage you to take action no matter if big or small.

The event is split into three different categories, each screening takes place in its own unique location on three Saturdays in November/December 2020. More Information are listed in each category.

FM 20/21 - The festivals reboot is organized by Guido Kühn and Christian Fischer, in collaboration with ambitious students from Hochschule Fulda.

A jury will select movies which deal best with the festival topic. The winner will receive the "Formula Mundi" award.
