"Everything Is A Game", this is the theme of the festival in the German city of games, Altenburg. So we want to present films which are telling stories about games. This could be the game of love, the game inside politics or about gaming in an old or new fashioned style. We're looking for shorts but also longer films (between 30 an 90 minutes). It is a feature or a documentary movie? You can submit every genre.
An important focus we have on films about computer or analog gaming or films which made with computergames or old fashioned analog games.
The festival will take place in an old historian malt factory in the German city of Altenburg. It is not only a screening, because You will discover a great place! The Paul-Gustavus-Haus is a cultural heritage building within the inner city of Altenburg. Built 1905 as a factory for coffee-substitutes, it constitutes one of the few examples for the combination of living and working in the former residence town in the turn of the century. In 2009, a nonprofit association was founded with a clear mission: to preserve and gradually restore the long disused building, and to revitalize it by various cultural events. 2017, almost sixty members are voluntarily involved. The aim of the Förderverein Zukunftswerkstatt Paul-Gustavus-Haus e.V. as a vibrant social-cultural district center is: to stimulate the urban area marked by high rates of vacancy and underutilized buildings and estates, furthermore, to demonstrate alternative uses of worth preserving buildings in a central downtown location. The main focus in particular is the exchanges between generations and cultures, social integration projects, along with concerts, art and theater performances.
