The festival programme

After a one year break, the Favorites Film Festival is back with its 10th edition. From September 22nd to 26th we will be showing handpicked international festival favourites in the City Kino Wedding. The festival concept has remained unchanged since 2011: We select current, strong, emotional films that have won an audience award at film festivals around the globe.

All films are shown with English subtitles.

A declaration of love to the cinema, the audience and being together.

The festival programme

Dearest Bremen audience,
you might have seen it coming: We will not go through with 8th edition of the Favourites Film Festival Bremen in April.
The films are selected, the programme is printed, the posters are put up and we are immensely sad, but also sure of our decision. Due to our unsure financial situation we are not sure yet whether we can postpone the festival, but we’ll try everything in our power.
Stay healthy & watch movies!
