Our event was named “a festival with a high concentration of good films […] which brought together filmmakers from Italy, Austria, Germany and Switzerland in a charming manner”, thus justifying our hard work.
This 33nd edition of our festival brought many filmgoers to Bozen last April, with some 5,700 guests making it one of our most successful years in recent memory. The programme featured 65 films as well as a huge offering for young filmmakers, musicians and students.
What we achieved in 2019 is now our goal and guiding principle for the 34nd BOLZANO FILM FESTIVAL BOZEN, which will bring fresh contemporary films and their key players to Bozen between the 21th and 26th April 2020.
