Bildrausch – Filmfest Basel

Verein Bildrausch

There’s reason to celebrate! It's Bildrausch's birthday!
For the 10th time, we are celebrating the infinite diversity of international cinema - for five days, Basel will become the film Mecca in the border triangle. We invite you to join us for discoveries in the cinema and on the net, hugs in the new festival centre on Theaterplatz and forays through the city on the way to our numerous partners.
In this year's edition, the festival links Basel with the world, yesterday with today: In our homages to Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige and Félix Dufour-Laperrière, the private and the political overlap, the present only reveals itself through a look in the rear-view mirror. The new programme series Kaleidoscope shows the whole range of contemporary filmmaking and, in the international competition, we present current artistic positions as a Swiss premiere.

These films, their protagonists and their makers are self-confident. They counter the seriousness of the situation sometimes with humour, sometimes with punk and also with a resounding yes to a happy ending. A bright light in challenging times. In the cinema and, thanks to our digital bridge, also in your living room!
