The HFF Munich is one of the most renowned film schools in the German-speaking area, offering a variety of courses and a very special event location.
Since its founding in 1966, or rather since instruction began in 1967, HFF Munich has trained the movie talents of tomorrow. The school’s illustrious alumni include Caroline Link, Doris Dörrie, Bernd Eichinger, Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, Wim Wenders and Roland Emmerich. During the early years, classes were held in a villa in Schwabing, until their relocation to a former bed-spring factory in the Giesing section of Munich in 1988. Finally, in September 2011, the school moved to its newly built facility in the heart of the Munich art district. Here, all the study programs have been united under one roof. From its film and television studios to a separate post-production wing, plus its three screening rooms – the HFF center offers all the facilities needed to make both filmmaking and film studies the finest activity in the world.
Forward Festival Munich 2020 will be taking place as a part of MCBW (Munich Creative Business Week) with the kind support of bayern.design and Bayerisches Staatsministeriums für Wirtschaft, Landesentwicklung und Energie.
Frequently asked questions
I bought a wrong ticket category or a ticket for a wrong city. What can I do?
Your ticket is transferable and not connected to the ticket holder’s name. We thus encourage you to give/sell the ticket to another person. Make someone’s day a special one!
I can only attend on one day of the festival. Can I buy a full Festival ticket and give the ticket to a friend for the second day?
Full festival tickets are transferable, but NOT shareable. Once you exchanged the ticket for your wristband, the ticket can’t be used by another person! The best way to handle the situation is to purchase a day ticket once they are available (a few weeks before the festival).
Can I get a refund for my ticket?
Unfortunately, we don’t do refunds, but since your name is not on the ticket – thus the ticket is not for a specific person – it is possible that you give/sell the ticket to another person before registration.
Where can I sign up for workshops?
Some of our workshops have a limited capacity of participants. You need to sign up in advance to snatch one of the spots. Last minute places will be available 15 minutes before the start of the workshop at the location. You can find all the information on how to sign up at the detailed description of each workshop. Some workshops are subject to an extra fee. You can buy access to the workshop in our ticketshop.
I'm at school or doing an apprenticeship,. Am I still eligible for a student ticket?
Yes, you are! Everyone under 28 years old (on the first day of the festival) with a valid ID that proves that they’re currently enrolled in an officially recognized educational institution, can access the festival with a student ticket. If you are not sure whether your education/training is eligible, write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
