Great cinema is finally back!

The summer edition of the Berlinale has started, the Filmfest München starts on 1st July and the Colosseum Center in Kempten and the Union Filmtheater in Immenstadt are already open. See you in the cinema!


A cinematic review with many impressions from Kaufbeuren and the new festival locations in Kempten and Immenstadt as well as short excerpts from all award-winning films:

Further impressions can be gleaned from our review flyer (PDF, 3,3 MB).

Submission deadline has expired

Just on time at midnight on 31 March we have closed the application window for the 14th edition of our festival filmzeit.

More than 500 submissions from all over the world have reached us and now we start the screening.

Many thanks to all filmmakers, we keep our fingers crossed that their contribution will be accepted in one of the competitions. Our final programme will be compiled by July. Afterwards everyone will be contacted personally. Good luck!

filmzeit goes digital!

With the funding by the Beisheim Foundation we are planning an additional digital programme -

  • For schools in the Allgäu region with students between 14 and 18 years who do not have the opportunity to visit our festival theatres during the school programme of the filmzeit
  • For senior citizens and retirement homes in the Allgäu, for whom we put together a custom-made programme, called silberfilmzeit
  • and for all newcomers to the festival and for the ones who are cautious, we have put together a small cross-section of all competitions.

The digital filmzeit is rounded off with interviews with the filmmakers, with background information and with live streams.
Further information about the exact programme of the schulfilmzeit and the silberfilmzeit is available via the festival office.
