Festival for creativity, design and communication

First Speakers Munich
The HFF Munich is one of the most renowned film schools in the German-speaking area, offering a variety of courses and a very special event location.
Since its founding in 1966, or rather since instruction began in 1967, HFF Munich has trained the movie talents of tomorrow. The school’s illustrious alumni include Caroline Link, Doris Dörrie, Bernd Eichinger, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Wim Wenders and Roland Emmerich. During the early years, classes were held in a villa in Schwabing, until their relocation to a former bed-spring factory in the Giesing section of Munich in 1988. Finally, in September 2011, the school moved to its newly built facility in the heart of the Munich art district. Here, all the study programs have been united under one roof. From its film and television studios to a separate post-production wing, plus its three screening rooms – the HFF center offers all the facilities needed to make both filmmaking and film studies the finest activity in the world.
Forward Festival Munich 2020 will be taking place as a part of MCBW (Munich Creative Business Week) with the kind support of bayern.design and Bayerisches Staatsministeriums für Wirtschaft, Landesentwicklung und Energie.
