Introduction to the film festival

Set in the heart of the alps, FFKB aims to address filmmakers, industry professionals, as well as people interested in film and cinema - locally, nationally and internationally. The festival focuses on establishing a connection between the contemporary art of film and the existing traditions of the region. In 2016, FFKB was added to the list of film festivals accredited by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations (FIAPF) and thus has affirmed its young but nevertheless strong standing in the landscape of international festivals ever since. FFKB was accredited by FIAPF as a competitive feature film festival specialized in young directors’ films. FFKB puts its focus on supporting and promoting national and international up and coming talents, giving them the opportunity to present their films to a wide audience, including representatives of the industry and media, in order for them to be seen, discussed and promoted. Furthermore, it is our goal to provide insights for the residents and visitors of Kitzbuehel - not just through screening the "young" voices of cinema, but also by introducing them to the history of film through our "Retrospective" section. Through its stimulating, diverse and varied festival program, FFKB has established a fresh, annual, not-to-be-missed summer event in the town of Kitzbuehel.
