The Saas-Fee Filmfest shows films from Switzerland and its neighbouring countries, where the languages of Switzerland are spoken: Italy, France, Germany, Austria. The exchange at this intersection of five countries is especially interesting for us when looking at coproductions or comparing different approaches to the same topic.

The feature film competition of the Saas-Fee Filmfest is interested in free, personal, innovative cinematic approaches and strong, moving stories which challenge viewing and thought habits. The production budget and the length of the director’s filmography play a secondary role as selection criteria.

The special programme of the Saas-Fee Filmfest is on the search for films of the most different formats and genres, which keep writing on the age-old conflict between nature and man and surprise with new viewpoints on “sustainability”.

With respect to the international audience in Saas-Fee, all films will be screened with english subtitles.
