The Saas-Fee Filmfest shows films from Switzerland and its neighbouring countries, where the languages of Switzerland are spoken.

At the core of the festival is the feature film competition FILMS FROM FIVE COUNTRIES with recent productions from Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Italy and France. The focus of the programme is on free, personal, innovative cinematic approaches and strong, authentic stories. With films that observe the world with awake, attentive eyes we want to challenge viewing and thought habits.

The production budget and the length of the director’s filmography play a secondary role as selection criteria.

The panel 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.
