The films submitted should take a look at geographical and cultural phenomena between center, edge and exclusion in order to highlight what is common and what separates communities of language, life and work in superdiversified neighborhoods:
Who and what is seemingly in the middle of society? And: How is it possible to look away from the middle and beyond?
One feature film (2.000 Euro) and one shortfilm (1.000 Euro) will be awarded.
Submitted films should have an English or German transcript of dialogues. Radio headsets for live translation will be handed out to the audience.
Children 10 and older will be in the audience along with their parents, so the films submitted should not contain scenes that are disturbing to children.
