Artistic vision, the courage to be different, a desire for the unfamiliar, a profound historical awareness or pioneering personalities: the objective of the Panorama is to seek out from across the world new impulses in the prevailing trends and in cinematic creation and to present these in the spectrum of the programme.
New works by renowned directors, debut films and discoveries celebrate their world or European premieres in the Panorama and invite to engage with them on a critical level as well as enjoying the cinematic experience. The Panorama challenges its audience and has the confidence to explore new avenues. Press Conferences and public discussions enable the press and audiences to enter into a dialogue about the films with their directors, producers and actors. At the same time, the film selection does not shy away from the current market, aiming both to sound it out and to bring it new impulses.
