Central American Film Festival

20.11.2022 - 27.11.2022

This year, we want to invite you to celebrate sensitivity and sensibility. The preference for exciting cinema that is connected with feeling draws us as far as the south of Mexico – and further, because even productions with an Asian touch found their way into our programme this year! But of course, we also offer typical Central American films! The festival opens with a Guatemalan feature film that will give us goose bumps for the whole week. But it’s not only excitement that characterizes our programme this year, there’s something for every mood.
Traditionally, we show political cinema: on the one hand, the story of the journalist Elías Barahona, who infiltrated the Guatemalan government in the 1970s, and on the other hand, that of the Honduran human rights and environmental activist Berta Cáceres. Our popular short film format, which brings together the diversity of Central American cinema productions in just one screening, is also all about sensitivity and provides an empathetic insight into challenging life situations.

As always, our film programme is accompanied by great guests and framed by live music. In addition, school events offer a great opportunity to supplement lessons through didactic material and on-site discussions.
In line with the messages of the festival films, we dedicate MAFF 2022 to all those who have kept their sensibility, keep their eyes open and are there for their fellow human beings. We love your love!
Sí a la sensibilidad y al amor.
