About Bildrauschabout

Can films change the world? No. Or maybe yes. The power of images is undisputed. Also that behind every film is an intention. The central theme of this year’s BILDRAUSCH edition is Truth and Other Lies. News is streamed nonstop from all over the world. What can we believe? Who guarantees the facts? We can look away. Or observe and form an opinion.

Our film program deals with critical questions about home, identity, and interpersonal relationships that dominate our complex everyday life with all its (un)truths. The short film series SHORTS explores family ties, investigates voyeuristic gazes, and enchants us with love stories. The in-depth FOKUS series takes a look at investigative methods in film. It reveals shades of truth and shows the courage, power, and means of journalistic filmmaking – but also powerlessness in the face of violence and censorship.
