Check out some of the highlights here!

Focus: The City

The City is the focus of this years festival and the programme is full of exclusive events that in different ways are connected to the topic. Through film, unique outdoor screenings, audio walks and seminars we want to create a conversation about the future of cities all over the world. Among other things we will discuss urban acitivism, gentrification and sustainable city development. When will we get a city where everyone, regardless of origin and gender can feel safe? Is that even possible? And what does that kind of city look like?
