LICHTER Filmfest Frankfurt International Opening



What is the state of truth in 2017? This is what the 10th LICHTER Filmfest Frankfurt International will examine from 28. March to 2. April 2017. During the jubilee edition of the festival, the international film section and the accompanying program approach the subject of “TRUTH” in all its facets.

Featuring on the LICHTER Filmfest 2017 programme will not only be the humanly ingrained search for the ultimate truth but also the omnipresent attempts of populists to twist and conceal truths. “We would like to pose the question in the political as well as the private domain, in the religious as in the arts, in the media as in the most distant parallel worlds of the Internet: What is your position vis-a-vis truth?,” says GREGOR MARIA SCHUBERT about the theme of the upcoming festival.
