The international media festival is a firm anchor in the calendar of events of Villingen-Schwenningen. The variety puts out the charm of this unique event in Europe. Every two years the festival attracts media enthusiast and producers to three audio-visual days.

By my affinity to the photography, I have discovered already very early my big passion. The passion for big pictures and exciting productions. I was always very proud of it when my contributions and pictures were presented to a wide audience. Today I am an organizer of a festival and it is to me an affair of the heart to offer a stage to other producers and to present a varied programme the visitors.

The 18 x 6. 25 m panoramic screen will give a phenomenal visual pleasure by the application of the highest-quality projection technology and an unbelievable physical great HD resolution.

Beside the entertaining and amusing productions, which are presented in three show blocks, famous story narrators with their travel adventures and cultural productions grant to us exciting insights into their experiences.

Visitors of the festival have the possibility to satisfy their interest for knowledge in our informative seminars & workshops and profit from the experiences and competence of the experts.

In the entrance hall of the Neue Tonhalle our photo exhibition in 4K is also a wonderful place of meeting and communication. On the photo exhibition photographers present their best pictures, which appear due to 4K colourful and accurate in every detail.

The festival appeals to the interested technology fan as well as to the film interested. Let you delight by the idea of the multimedia festival.
