KINO DER KUNST is a combination of film festival and art exhibition. The 2019 edition will take place in Munich, Germany, from April 30 to May 5.
KINO DER KUNST investigates the connection between visual art and cinema; its programmatic focus lies on how cinematographic artists approach fiction and narration. This year’s topic of the competition is “Forbidden Beauty”. The competition will present cinematic works in which artists apply formal innovation and a highly aesthetic visual language without losing sight of the serious issues of our time.
The films must have been produced after January 1, 2017. Only single-channel narrative works by visual artists will be accepted. The films may be of any length.
