Since spring 2015, the intercultural film club “Blickwechsel Jetzt” (translates to Change of Perspective Now! or Exchanging Looks Now!) developed by the DFF has been a platform for cultural participation and encounter between (unaccompanied) teenage refugees and Frankfurt youth between the ages of 14 and 18. So far, around 1,000 young people have participated in the programme and experienced the film museum as a place where they are welcome and where they can be part of a cultural project without having to thematise their flight experiences. Every month, they meet for dinner and to watch and experience films in the cinema at DFF. Current films, film classics and short film compilations from all over the world are part of the programme, that is supposed to encourage exchange and discussions among the group at the subsequent get together.
The Filmclub was created in cooperation with the Active School Frankfurt and is realized in cooperation with the Kolpinghaus Frankfurt and the AWO Ehrenamtsagentur “Freiwillig”.
