About the festival

Salle de cinéma festival

Fribourg International Film Festival aims to promote the understanding between cultures through films. It gives preferences to productions that stimulate reflection and provoke discussion. It intends to celebrate cinema, that of yesterday, today and tomorrow.

The festival takes place every year in March and runs projects all year long (cultural mediation, support). It hosts a feature films competition, a short films competition and several parallel sections (see programme).
