There is a special prize for every partaking movie of the World Movie Contest advertised from the Sparkasse Dortmund. It includes prize money of 500€ and will be awarded to the movie with the best support for the topic of "understanding among nations".  It will only be awarded to the present author for a work, that promotes a better understanding between people and nations.

Which workshops are there ?

The BDFA celebrates their 90th anniversary in 2017. During the event the BDFA presents itself not only in the historical retrospective. Workshops and lectures convey a picture of current technical and social challenges, which are understood as a great opportunity for formulating ambitious targets.

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.
