This festival, dedicated to a movie format over 50 years old, is a dream for a lot of movie fans around the world. Today, movies and cinemas have reached a time of change – a change from film based to digital cinema and a change in the way movies are felt and understood. We are sure, that our 70mm Festival presented in our newly renovated cinema not only will make you remember cinema-going from a time long ago, but also make you aware of the responsibility we all have: To honour the genius of so many people who have given us stories and unforgettable moments in breathtaking and crystal clear large format pictures. A mix of newly restored classics, ultra rare 70mm features and big screen classics. We look forward to seeing you.....!

If you have any questions about the festival, technical equipment or accommodation, do not hesitate to contact festival curator Jan E Olsen
