Intercultural Film Club Blickwechsel Jetzt!

Jugendliche stehen vor dem Kinopublikum

Since spring 2015, the DFF has been running the transcultural film club “Blickwechsel Jetzt!” (“Perspective Change Now”), providing a platform for cultural engagement and interaction among young people aged 14 to 20 in Frankfurt, both with and without refugee experience. The DFF is embraced by these youths as a welcoming space, offering an escape from the rigors of school and daily life, fostering meaningful exchanges.

Each month, approximately 15-25 adolescents gather for a communal dinner followed by a film screening at the DFF cinema. The film selection spans from contemporary releases to timeless classics and diverse short film compilations from around the globe, igniting lively discussions during the subsequent gatherings. Notably, the youth are increasingly involved in curating the film lineup themselves, adding a personal touch to the club’s programming. At LUCAS – International Festival for Young Film Fans, they present their favorite film of the year.

The film club was created in partnership with Aktive Schule Frankfurt and is run in collaboration with the Kolpinghaus Frankfurt. Starting in 2022, the film club has been receiving support from the “Löwenstark” funding program provided by the Hessian Ministry of Education.
