Humor/Satire

No more fun? – No thanks!

 

The international competition Humour / Satire brings films from all over the world to the screen that illuminate very different facets of the genre. Whether black humour or romantic comedy, social satire or action comedy, at the Filmfest comedy can be laconic, absurd or light, tragic or feel good, it can scratch (taste) boundaries or simply make you laugh. Humour unexpectedly opens up new doors and possibilities between people, because in many places explosive topics can only be addressed through the comedic mouthpiece. Tragedy and comedy are often very close to each other and laughter is all the more liberating. Laughter is also a form of communication that knows no linguistic barriers, which is why this competition is particularly close to our hearts.

 

From more than 200 submissions, our viewing committee has selected 22 short and medium-length films as well as seven feature films that will “compete” for the following prizes in their respective categories:
