Which workshops are there ?

Trips - We are Germany
Dortmund and the Ruhrgebiet consist of the diversity of cultures and unique history. Industry, gastronomy, sport and shopping belong to the face of the country as well as cultural heritages and museums. The trips are designed for an international audience. They are organized centrally and offered in multiple languages.
Meeting friends - Get together
In addition to the large number of films remains enough space for meetings and talks with friends. There will be a daily “Get together“ at the end of the official film program on the terrain of the Zeche Zollern II/IV. Westphalian specialties and international cuisine are offered late into the night at the “Pferdestall“.
Gala night - Time to say "GOOD BYE"
Saying good bye can be hard. A Gala night in a historical environment shall end the WORLD MOVIE CONTEST solemnly. The organizer will consider the age and the country of origin of the guest regarding the admission charge in order to give everybody the chance to say good bye to old and new friends in a common circle on this special evening.
