Recha jungmann filmscreening 17 4 2024

The teaching area Film was newly staffed at the beginning of the winter semester 2020/2021. From now on, Prof. Dr. Marie-Hélène Gutberlet and Prof. Angelika Levi will shape the teaching in two autonomous and complementary part-time professorships.

A new "Offenbach Model" of film education is in the making, which makes courageous to question today's aesthetic, technical and socio-political challenges in filmmaking and film thinking.

The VideoLab (Claus Withopf) and the AudioLab (Bernd Zimmermann) are affiliated with the Film Department; teaching assignments and guests from Germany and abroad expand the range of courses.


Kleine form programm

small forms (kleine formen)

An obvious strategy for dealing with the Corona pandemic is to translate film into provisional, casual and mobile formats and to go out with it to experience its magic in small forms in the immediate surroundings.

Instead of grand gestures and finished works in convivial gatherings, fragments, experiments, work-in-progress can be seen: in shop windows, on house walls opposite, for passers-by as they pass by, after dark. From August 27 to September 12, 2020 in Offenbach and Frankfurt at various locations.

The "small forms" are part of the HfG Interventions #2.
