Zurich Film Day


Tuesday, September 28

The Zürcher Filmstiftung and the Zurich Film Festival continue to pursue their joint aim: the second Zurich Film Day on Tuesday, September 28, once again focusses on Zurich as a centre of film production, and highlights the economic and social importance of filmmaking to both the city and canton by organising the second open-day 'film stroll' along the value chain of the filmmaking business. From financing to development, from production and post-production to distribution, the doers and makers of the Zurich film industry throw open their doors to offer a fascinating insight into the work they do. The tour can be arranged individually and runs without reservation. In addition, the ZFF will screen local films from its official selection and complete the day with the Zurich Film Night.
