Two Rivers Festival Cross-Cultural Documentary 

Cinema Koblenz, 10.-14. Juni 2020

NEWS


Dear friends of the 2Rivers Festival Koblenz,

in view of the still valid guidelines for restricting social contacts, normal festival operations will not be possible in June. Since a rescheduling does not seem feasible, but also because we don’t want to call the festival off completely, we have worked hard and can now present the online edition of the 2Rivers!

Instead of the 50 films originally selected for the offline version (offline programme here: www.2rivers-festival.de/offline-edition-programm-2020/), we will now show 35 films in the online edition, including all the films of the student competition. The films will be accessible via Vimeo with tickets at a price of 3.90 € per 24 hours each during the entire festival (10-14 June). The films of the student competition will be available free of charge and beyond the regular festival time, until 21 June. A first overview of the program can be found here: www.2rivers-festival.de/online-programm-2020/, the final completion of our streaming pages is imminent. This will allow for a much more flexible viewing of the films and we thus hope that all the films will find their audience.

In order to bring something of the festival's event character into virtuality, we are currently trying to organize live talks with the filmmakers – here, too, you can already get a first overview: www.2rivers-festival.de/talks/

We are looking forward to inspiring films, stimulating conversations and interesting discussions!

2Rivers Festival Koblenz - Online Edition

22 April 2020

 

Dear friends of the 2Rivers Festival Koblenz,

In view of the guidelines for restricting social contacts, which are still in force, it is becoming apparent that normal festival activities will not be possible in June. Since a rescheduling does not seem feasible, but also because we don’t want to call the festival off completely, we have decided to hold the 2Rivers in a modified form online from 10 to 14 June.

The various forms of physical encounter and direct dialogue that make up the atmosphere of a festival will probably not be possible for a long time to come, and so we are trying to 'save' as much of it as possible for the internet in cooperation with the filmmakers and funding institutions. More soon!

Here and on Facebook we will report on the progress of the festival.
