The festival for 2023 is dedicated to women of today, under the title:

"Women, born or feel this way"

Speak out for all of them, those who were born as women or have been trapped in bodies others than they wished for.

Speak out about their struggles, achievements, social exclusion, maternity vs career, abuse and isolation.

Tell the world what it is to be a woman of today. Let the world know, what they have accomplished and suffered in the patriarchal societies they grew up in.

    A festival with a great film program and excellent communication by the festival team. I’m really proud that my film The Unusual Bath of Mister Otmar won the Best Animated Award.
    Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus situation I could not attend the festival, but I believe there will be an opportunity in the coming years. This will be an unavoidable festival for my next films.
    Thanks for everything and keep doing such a good job.
