The Filmwinter Stuttgart Explores Absence


Es una casa tan grande la ausencia
que pasaràs en ella a través de los muros
y colgaràs los cuadros en el aire.
Es una casa tan transparente la ausencia
“Soneto XCIV”, Pablo Neruda

The Festival edition is located at the interface between a media-dominated society in all its facets and all of the things falling through or getting blurred by the grid of such a society: what is not said or depicted, the things pushed aside or rejected. We are longing for absence and its traces. Like a test strip, our Festival delves into the big house of absence - placing it at the macro focus.

Short Films, Media and Net Art, AV Performances and Workshops

For the 33rd time, the best submissions for the international competition categories Short Film, Media in Space and Network Culture will be at the centre of the festival. A varied supporting programme comprising retrospectives, performances and lectures by artists from all over the world will round off the nationally renowned film and media festival. The programme for children, teenagers and the whole family will also feature exciting surprises.

Main Festival Locations: FITZ! Zentrum für Figurentheater, Theater tri-bühne und Kunstbezirk

The 33rd Filmwinter Stuttgart - Festival for Expanded Media - will take place from 16 to 19 January 2020 at the venues FITZ! Zentrum für Figurentheater and Theater tri-bühne. Another co-operation partner is the Kunstbezirk where the media and net-art exhibition will be on display.


Thank you for your submissions

Thank you for the overwhelming number of submissions. We are now busy reviewing the submissions and wish you a nice summer.

"Schnitte ins Erinnerungsvermögen / Schnitzel of Love" - Short Film Programme & Puppet Theatre on Wed 29th of May 2019 at FITZ! Theater animierter Formen

Still „Cut“ (2013) von Matthias Müller und Christoph Girardet

Short film programme & puppet theatre: carnal, rose-red, painful, divine, entertaining and experimental. Experiences sink into memory, the past takes on a surprising form. Giovanna Thiery, director of the Stuttgart Filmwinter and performer Stefanie Oberhoff, take their time to fall out of time: the fruitful break at a car breakdown in the middle of the forest, a Petite Madeleine soaked in lime blossom tea on a Sunday morning. You will remember it.

In cooperation with FITZ! Zentrum für Figurentheater as part of the event series Remember Me - Stories of Remembering and Forgetting
