Mission / description The Neisse Film Festival, at home in the southeastern corner of Germany, where the German, Polish and Czech borders meet, is characterized by cooperation between film makers in the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland, and offers a glimpse into film production in the three neighbor countries.
Since its inception in Grosshennersdorf and Zittau in 2004, the Neisse Film Festival has grown steadily, and now films have also been shown across eastern Saxony. One aspect of the festival which makes it unique in Germany, is its internationality, with films being shown in three countries.
The competition for long feature films makes up the heart of the program. Nine feature films by mostly younger German, Polish and Czech film directors compete for the main prize for Best Feature Film, Best Actor and Best Scenography. This is awarded by an international jury. The Short Film and Documentary Competitions are also open for german, czech and polish film makers.
Every film being shown in the festival is eligible for two further prizes: the Audience Favorite and a SPEZIAL Prize funded by the Saxon Film Association (Filmverband Sachsen).
A rich variety of films dealing with numerous special themes as well as international box office hits, join the feature films, short films and documentaries. In addition, the festival program includes film discussions, public readings, art exhibitions and concerts by musicians from the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland.
