Bremen Film – Public Voting

Films by filmmakers from Bremen or Lower Saxony and productions of all kinds shot in Bremen or Lower Saxony are a central element of Filmfest Bremen. In the local competition, on the one hand, feature films and documentaries are shown that are set all over the world but were made with Bremen or Lower Saxony participation, and on the other hand, films that deal directly with regional history or were shot in the region. The Bremen Film Festival is thus a hub for networking local and national filmmakers.


Twenty-two short and medium-length films and six feature-length films – ranging from comedy and drama to experimental and documentary – represent the broad spectrum of local filmmaking and compete for the following prizes, which are again determined by audience vote:

Audience voting


Immediately after every single screening, the audience has the opportunity to rate the film they have just seen using the 5-point system:


1 = bad

2 = moderate

3 = liked

4 = good

5 = outstanding


The evaluation will take place on Sunday, followed by the announcement of the two winning films at the award ceremony on 16 April 2023 in the Kleines Haus of the Bremen Theatre.
