The twelfth annual international open-air architecture film festival presents films on the topic of Travel, Holidays and Tourism in times of climate crisis.

Almost any corner of the world can be reached in just a few hours — at least by a small portion of humanity. It is estimated that only 10-20% of the world’s population travels on a regular basis. Tourism is seen as a way to guarantee new jobs, although the sector is often also responsible for the perpetuation of neo-colonial structures. Who benefits from tourism, and what happens when holidaymakers suddenly stop traveling? How does tourism dominate entire regions and what is the role played in this by spatial planning and architecture? Is it even appropriate to travel nonchalantly when national borders represent an almost insurmountable hurdle and a danger for millions of people? The open-air festival invites film and architecture enthusiasts to spend time together, watch films and exchange ideas.

Curators: Lene Benz, Marlene Rutzendorfer
