The 6th edition of the online cinema festival kicks off on December 1
The 6th edition of the cinema festival ArteKino runs December 1-31, 2021. Created in 2016 by the French cultural channel ARTE TV/arte.tv, ArteKino is a free digital festival dedicated to young European cinema.
The 12 feature films in competition pay tribute to cultural and linguistic diversity in Europe, besides highlighting different continental talents and their perspective on the contemporary world. The 2021 program includes, among others, the German titles The Last to See Them and Wood and Water; the British Nocturnal and the Swiss film Sami, Joe and I, that will open ArteKino: Karin Haberlein’s film is the story of three inseparable friends facing an unexpected event, that disturbs their cheerful summer and puts their friendship to the test.
ArteKino’s films will be available in 32 European countries, in 6 different languages (French, German, English, Spanish, Polish and Italian) via the web platform arte.tv and the YouTube channel ARTE Cinéma. Although ArteKino is an online festival, the film Sami, Joe and I will be screened during a special public event, which takes place on Tuesday, November 30, 2021, at the Institut Français – Centre Saint Louis, in Rome, Italy. After the screening, viewers will have the chance to vote the ArteKino Audience Award, sponsored by Chanel, and try to win one of the three European Film Lovers’ prizes: a trip to Cannes Film Festival, Berlin Film Festival or an Angell/S smart bike.
ArteKino is a venture by ARTE France Cinema, ARTE GEIE and Festival Scope and it’s supported by Creative Europe.
