This Year’s Crew
The Board of Directors
We are Sophie, Amelie, Anouk & Camilla and the board of the 21st Düsseldorf Film Festival!
Since the beginning of the year we have been working on putting together another great short film festival for you!
Our job is to take care of the funding, finances and administration, keep an eye on the big picture and ensure that the work of our teams meshes well. We also try to create a space where everyone involved can grow together into a good team.
We have all been part of last year’s crew and for us this film festival is as much a key part of the HHU and MeKuWi as popcorn is for a good film! See you all in November!
The Acquisition Team
We are the 2023 Acquisition Team and we’re preparing this year’s programme! This year we set a new record by receiving over 1700 films! We watched them, rated them, and picked the best just for you!
We have selected 16 films from around the world. These amazing films will make you laugh, cry, be moved, sit on the edge of your seat. We spent months watching all of the short films that had been entered so that you can enjoy a special and unique selection of films in this year’s programme.
We have also organised a top A jury with people from the industry and will support them during the festival. And we also accompany the filmmakers during the festival days.
We hope you enjoy this year’s films as much as we do. See you at the festival!
The Design Team
Hello, we are the Design Team 2023!
We take care of the visual and creative matters for the 70s retro flair.
This year’s motto was developed by our creative minds and ultimately implemented with each interim project. Our team designs, among other things, postcards, stickers, bags and special social media posts. Above all, however, we plunge into the mammoth projects, the main film festival poster and program booklet.
We hope you enjoy this year’s aesthetic and look forward to having you at Filmfest 2023!
The Technical Team
Even though the motto is the golden 20s, we from the technical team will again provide modern technology to be able to guarantee the best entertainment for you during the film festival days.
In addition to setting up the stage and the sound setup for our bands, our tasks also include controlling the programme in the auditorium and the Weltkunstzimmer. We also take care of the sound, lighting and transmission during the moderation and live interviews with the directors.
In addition to the technical aspects, we are also creatively active and feed our social media platforms with self-produced spots. There are teasers, trailers, the overture and also this year a documentary film for the twentieth anniversary of the film festival. As you can see, we’ve put in a lot of effort again this year to ensure that nothing is left to be desired.
