in cooperation with the DFG-research project "History of the Documentary film in Germany (1945-2005)"
cinefest 2014 and the 27th International Film History Conference will look at trends that have developed in documentary films since the 1960’s, when innovations such as lightweight 16mm equipment and video started influencing the making of films. In addition, we will also investigate the interesting and controversial mixture between documentary and fiction which developed in later years.
Throughout the festival and conference, we will span the gap and look into connections between the classics of the 1960s and 1970s and modern day issues such as globalization, environmental degradation, food industries, and nuclear energy as well as influences the internet and social media have had on public opinion.
For an international perspective, influential films from Czechoslovakia, Great Britain, France, and other countries will be screened.
