Thanks to all filmmakers and visitors for making the 40th Filmfest such a great anniversary!
Centralstation in Darmstadt will be screening a selection on October 8, 2016.
During the 40th open air filmfestival children had the chance to get experiences in producing their own animation film. The result of the workshop held by the Studio niky-bilder from Cologne is a nice piece of a stop-motion-film.

The 40th Open-Air Filmfest Weiterstadt will take place from 11th till 15th of August 2016.
Deadline for entries was May 13th, 2016
There will be a free shuttle-bus from Darmstadt to Weiterstadt to the open air-area and back, timetable see here!
The time has come! This August – just like the last 39 years – Weiterstadt is going to become the setting for one of the most famous shortfilm festivals in Europe. During 5 days there will be screenings of about 200 films.
Of course this also requires lots of work. Since the festival is organised and run by volunteers, we need support during the actual festival as well as for the set-up and tear-down. Tasks range from cutting onions, turning a circus tent into a cinema to selling coffee… there is a lot to do.
The festival is going to take place from August 11th till 15th, the set-up starts about 10 days before. So if you are free during that period and if you are keen on being a part of an international film festival, contact us!
The Open-Air Filmfest Weiterstadt took place from 15-19 of August 2013.
