Promoting the exchange of views and ideas on issues of migration through audio-visual pieces as well as their discursive embedding.
This year’s festival took place from November 17-20, 2021 at Leokino Innsbruck and Bäckerei. Thank you for this wonderful edition!
Resistance & Activism
In 2021, activism and resistance in the context of migration was the focus of the issue.
Matter of fact...
The permanent, global movement of people, information and goods is an anthropological and contemporary reality. The encounter of people with the most diverse biographies, affiliations and identifications is a constant part of everyday life. But under what conditions and power relations do these encounters take place?
... our idea
The INNCONTRO – International Film Festival of Diversity aims to promote the exchange on issues of migration in the form of international feature, documentary and short films and their discursive embedding and mediation. The reality of migration should neither be romanticized nor its actors victimized. The focus is therefore always on the protagonists’ agency and practices of resistance.
The film festival creates a place of encounter as well as a space for exchange on socio-political issues related to migration. The moving image as a projection screen for the interior enables a special form of dealing with questions about the joys and sorrows, the surprises and difficulties that life on the run, in a new home or in exile can mean. The film festival stimulates us to question points of view, to criticize structures or power, to broaden our horizon for other world views and to reflect on society from the perspective of different social positions.
