Zurich Film Day


Tuesday, September 29

Zurich Film Festival and the Zürcher Filmstiftung organise the very first Zurich Film Day on Tuesday, September 29. Various films made in Zurich that are part of the ZFF programme will be shown throughout the day. Furthermore, the public is given the opportunity to sneak a peek behind the scenes of the Zurich filmmaking industry: from 10.00 until 18.00, people can take an open-day ‘film stroll’ along the value chain of the filmmaking business by visiting production companies and filmmaking enterprises. The day promises special treats like the presentation of a film music reel, self-made animations and special effects demos. Language: German
