38th Open Air Filmfest Weiterstadt: August 14-18, 2014

Deadline for entries was the 15th of May 2014

Your help is needed!

The time has come! This August – just like the last 37 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 – to get more of a glimpse into our programme, you’ll find more information on our website.

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 14th till 18th, the set-up starts 5 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!
