Film, social affairs, culture and art meet for a weekend. The film festival highlights topics that are associated with the social project "Waldhüttl" Innsbruck. It is essential that the planning takes place together with the residents of the Waldhüttl. According to the principle "Culture & Art Against Poverty", a supporting program with various opportunities for social exchange is offered. Cooperation partner is "Kultur am Rande der Stadt (culture on the outskirts of the city)".
No Entry.

All films selected by the film curator will receive a certificate of recognition.
Due to the social focus of this film festival and possibly emotional film topics, we keep our distance from a conventional competition. The opportunity to celebrate life through the supporting program is all the more important to us.

The film festival in the waldhüttl would like to offer social interests a projection surface. Films are therefore accepted for submission that address social issues in a broader sense or illuminate social coexistence, in or far from home. The focal points in the "Waldhüttl" are: housing, migration, poverty, sustainability, nature and good coexistence - that's what we want to bring to the canvas.

Submission criteria :

- Short films are accepted as well as feature films, feature films, documentaries and experimental films. Main topic: social issues.
- Only one film per submitter is permitted.
- Subtitles encouraged
- Submission takes place via a download link, alternatively a registered delivery of the storage medium after consultation with the festival board of trustees
- Projection format - mp4 h264. The festival has no infrastructure to be able to show DCPs.
