Winter Season 2017/18

Autumn has begun (and so has a period of rainy weather ...). Time for a change, don't you think?
We're back with a new colour scheme and a multifaceted winter season film programme. In November, you have the chance to join us for another round of A Bar is a Screen and on 21 December, we got a very special Short Film Day event for you.
Find out more about our upcoming events this Friday at Markt der Möglichkeiten at Carl-Zeiß-Straße 3 and watch out for our brand-new programme flyers. You're also invited to come to Haus auf der Mauer on Saturday where we will screen short films about communication at 8 pm. No admission fee!

Hosts Wanted!

Short films on the shortest day of the year: That's been the motto of the annual Short Film Day on 21 December for five years. In 2017, it'll be no different. It's only just September but cellu l'art is already preparing for that special day.

Why? Because we are planning something special. This year's theme for the Short Film Day in Germany is "Neighbours" which made us think that we don't want to screen short films just anywhere. Instead, we plan on bringing the people of Jena together in their own homes and the homes of strangers and friends. The specially curated programme will be presented in several homes at the same time and is conceptualized not just as a film programme but also as a social event.

You'll find more information and a registration form for hosts here. As a bonus, you'll receive free tickets for the award ceremony of the 19th cellu l'art Short Film Festival in April 2018. We're looking forward to meeting you!

HOSTS WANTED: Für den Kurzfilmtag am 21.12. sucht cellu l'art Wohnungen für Kurzfilmvorstellungen.
