Film & Media Meetup NEU

Film & Media Meetup LIVE!

Want to network, but preferably live and in color?

The digital networking event Film & Media Meetup goes live:

On Wednesday, April 19, from 5 to 7 pm at the Festival Center of the LICHTER Filmfest at Eschersheimer Landstraße 28 in Frankfurt

In a relaxed atmosphere, you can have a drink and talk about projects with other filmmakers, make contacts or just hear what's going on. We have everything you need to get started in the film and media industry.

Afterwards, at 19:30, the short film reel I from the regional short film competition will be shown in the Pupille - Kino in der Uni. If you want to join us to watch great short film highlights from Hessen and Rhein-Main, tickets are available here.

The FILM & MEDIA MEETUP is a cooperation project of Filmhaus Frankfurt, Film- und Kinobüro Hessen, Hessen Film & Medien, hessische Film- und Medienakademie (hFMA), Junge Generation Hessischer Film and Produzentenverband. It is the contact point for everyone who wants to be active in the field of film and media - no matter if students, graduates or interested people - and takes place since summer 2021 every 2 months on the last Thursday from 6 to 7 pm digitally and on April 19, 2023, now for the first time in presence.

Please register for the Meetup by April 17, 2 pm on Eventbrite.

All attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in Crew United's Crew Call on Friday, April 21, starting at 20:00.
