The Freundeskreis Filmfest München e.V. is a registered non-profit organization that promotes Munich as a film location and supports the local festival scene. The Freundeskreis also aims to express its love and passion for cinema through financial support and in this way share the experience of cinema with as many movie fans as possible. After all, it is the shared experience that makes going to the movies so special: that moment when the lights go down and it gets quiet in the theater, when all eyes are focused on the screen, when everyone laughs, cries, and is on the edge of their seats with excitement. That’s why the Freundeskreis Filmfest München looks forward to welcoming new members in the future.
One of the goals is also to promote and strengthen young filmmakers. For this reason, the Freundeskreis FILMFEST MÜNCHEN e.V. has sponsored the Audience Award at the FILMSCHOOLFEST MUNICH for several years and with that can provide financial support to young students and filmmakers.
