In a letter to the federal government, the Baden-W√ľrttemberg State Secretary points out the importance of film festivals and emphasizes „Film festivals do valuable work. Even outside the metropolises, they are important actors for the presentation of artistically sophisticated films and the mediation of international film culture and film education. Reliable funding for film festivals, as announced in the coalition agreement of the federal government, would thus also be a contribution to intercultural exchange nationwide.“ Furthermore, he emphasizes with reference to the report on the sustainability of virtual production compared to conventional productions.
