Alternative event for the Film Leben Festival 2021

Ilmenau, 08.06.2021 The four-day presence event of the Film Leben Festival originally planned for the beginning of July can unfortunately not take place this year as planned. However, in order to still offer a small program to all film enthusiasts, there will be a one-day event on Saturday, July 10, 2021 at the Ilmenau marketplace, where winning films from Film Leben Festivals of recent years will be presented.

Due to planning uncertainties and the resulting risk of holding the fifth edition of Film Leben Festival in Ilmenau during Corona is not feasible. The organization team of the festival and the project commissioners and partners regret this cancellation very much. Originally, a presence event was conceived to take place from July 8 to 11, 2021, at which special locations of Ilmenau were to be used for the presentation of short films. Now, instead, there will be an alternative for film lovers on Saturday, July 10, 2021. The organization team of the Film Leben Festival hopes for stable incidence values and is currently dealing with the event planning according to applicable hygiene protection measures. If, despite everything, it is not possible to implement the event in presence or the weather does not allow it to take place, there will be an online version of the event. In both cases, a selection of winning films from past festivals will be shown. Visitors can look forward to a supporting program in addition to the film screenings, and catering will also be provided in the marketplace. Tickets will be available for purchase from 26.6. 2021 via the website If you want to be there, you should be quick – the tickets are very limited!
