Film schools have to react to more than changing conditions of production. A lot has also happened in recent years with regard to diversity in particular. Films are becoming more and more differentiated in their themes and stories. But what about behind the camera? Is diversity more than just a lucrative selling point for the film industry?
On Tuesday, November 16, “Respekt!-Tag”, or “Day of Respect”, a university campaign throughout Germany, will get to the bottom of these questions. FILMSCHOOLFEST MUNICH will present a specially compiled program of short films on this topic, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmakers.
The events of the “Day of Respect” are aimed primarily at students, instructors, and employees of the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF), the University of Music and Performing Arts Munich (HMTM), the Academy of Fine Arts (AdBK), and the August Everding Theater Academy. Outsiders are welcome to attend, provided that seats are available (registration at respekt.hff-muc.de).
