This anthology (in German) is intended as an invitation to accompany film festivals as central actors of today’s film and cinema culture in times of disruptive change. The book follows pioneers who have not only excelled in dealing with the recent crisis, but rather have long been advocating for and actively shaping new positions within a radically changing media landscape. In this way, they make a significant contribution not only to saving film culture, but also to the future viability of the film industry as a whole.
