We will have a reduced programm for a limited number of spectators. There will be no film tent, only open air screenings. The open air programs will not take place in the Braunshardter Tännchen, but on the football field at the Braunshardter Tännchen, where the film tent is usually located. As we have to regulate the number of spectators and record the contacts, there will be an exceptional contribution towards expenses of 2,- Euro per evening. Online tickets are available here.
There will be 6 different open air programmes, the list of films is published here. Most films have English subtitles, but a few films are German without English subtitels.

In the rear area of the football field we will offer the possibility to visit the event as a drive-in cinema (with sound transmission to the car radio), so that people with pre-existing conditions and other risk groups will also have the opportunity to participate in the film festival. You can choose sitting on a bench (1 - 4 people on one bench, only people who visit the festival together can share a bench) or in your car (1 - 4 people).
There is a free bus shuttle from Darmstadt to the festival area. The daily free bus arrives at the festival when the areal opens and leaves when the programm is over.
