Our intention

Communication is not only the key to the success of a functioning industry, but also shows where there is potential. Giving needs, opportunities and problems a diverse and well-staffed stage not only emphasizes the possibility of exchange, but also promotes the development of a cross-industry and cross-media market. With the opportunity to give various representatives from production, promotion, market and media a common space, we would like to strengthen the promotion of the German-speaking industry and international competitiveness on many levels.

What counts here is not only freedom of opinion, but also the promotion of opinion and shedding light on what has been lost in many previous discussions due to a lack of diversity. A market is only as strong as all the levels that work together.

Every year, the Kitzbühel Film Festival brings together creatives and decision-makers from the fields of project development, production, broadcasting, distribution and film financing to discuss current key topics in film and television production in the DACH region. With the panels, the festival creates a purposeful platform.

Our special features

Guests from different industries, professions and levels are invited to discuss and create new paths together with possible points of contact.

It is important to us to involve the guests invited to the festival in the discourse and thus realize the full potential for future projects.

Exchange and discourse

Industry events, panels and workshops, where future topics are discussed both publicly and at internal events, form the central element of our think tank. We see communication as a tool to bring as many people together as possible.

Experts from the industry as well as young talents, production members, press, distributors and sponsors are linked together here and thus receive a professional space for exchange.

Workshops, panels & networking

Our workshops, which are geared towards producers and other industry representatives, create new perspectives on future-oriented topics such as streamers vs. TV and cinema and the development of the film industry's labor market (training and further education of professionals).

These topics are discussed in detail with the experts during the public discussion rounds.
