New Designed Awards for our 10th Anniversary Edition

For our 10th anniversary edition, we have designed new glamorous awards. At this year's Award Ceremony the most outstanding series and pilots will be honored. A total of 17 winners, selected by an international jury of experts, will take home our newly designed award. The evening will be hosted by Hannah Buscher and Robert Schäfer. This year's Award Ceremony will once again be accentuated with music by the pianist Lada Nevmyatullina.


Conference Program

The Educational offers lectures and discussions that intend to bring together film and media scholars with creators. How did the web series world develop in the past two decades? Where are we standing now and what is changing? What are the differences in the dramaturgical structure between short and long form series? What are the up-and-coming ideas and formats? And how do we look at short form digital series from a film- and media-theoretical perspective? The Educational is a cooperation with the "Hessen Film & Media Academy", the network of 13 Hessian universities.
