May 2022 - Ludwigsburg film premiere

After the professional film shoot could be completed in February 2021 despite the pandemic, it became clear that there had to be a worthy form of film premiere for these elaborately produced and very successful short films. Due to Corona, this could only be realised on 31 May 2022. However, with our cooperation partners from the Film Academy Ludwigsburg and Paradoksfilms, we were able to move into the Caligari cinema via 60 interested professionals - many of them in leading positions. The films and their benefits were discussed in detail with a top-class panel and the invited experts and leaders in a concentrated exchange.

This was then continued intensively into the evening at the premiere celebration with drinks and snacks.
