Festival Greeting

Festival director

Dear friends of the Saas-Fee Filmfest, a new colour appears in the SFFF. Besides the feature film competition the festival has a second focus now in the shape of our screenplay seminar SCRIPT CAMP. Quoting my former festival partner and SFFF-cofounder Gabriel Zurbriggen, who has turned to his other projects after 4 years of untirable festival work: "Everything is in flow".

But at the same time, 2018 is the year we're celebrating reunion with four guests of past festival editions, who come to the 5. SFFF in new roles: Götz Spielmann and Micha Lewinsky (Jury 4. SFFF)


as lecturers at the SCRIPT CAMP, Jan Schulz-Ojala (Critics Jury 4. SFFF) as Curator of the Hommage to Alain Tanner and Tommaso Tocci (Critics Jury 3. SFFF) as Co-Programmer of the competition. I'm glad about this great continuity and about the growing SFFFCommunity! We also have a few more newcomers to the team since last year: Rosemarie Bumann-Broger, Andreas Zurbriggen, Ute Bodenstein, Stephan Schläfereit, Sonja Schöberl, Helena Lopes und Hasso Hartmann, who curates the SCRIPT CAMP. Very warm thanks to our numerous longterm partners! I hope 2018 will also be the year to celebrate reunion with you, our audience!
