Welcome to INTERFILM, the International Interchurch Film Organisation. INTERFILM links cinema and church, cultures and religions. INTERFILM is looking beyond the screen.

On 17 November, the International Film Festival Mannheim-Heidelberg 2022 opened with the romantic comedy "Diary of a Fleeting Affair" by Emmanuel Mouret. The Ecumenical Jury awards its prize of € 2500 to a film in the competition section "On the Rise".


We often talk about Christians' attachment to cinema, as a path of faith, a crisp look to the world and a window open to an invisible kingdom. Today, I would like to reverse the discourse and evoke the fascination of filmmakers for the religious rituals, says Magali van Reeth in her greeting at the Ecumenical Reception in Mannheim 2022.
How do they manage it? The Warsaw International Film Festival had seven competitions: in addition to the International Competition, there is the "Crème de la Crème", the "1-2 Competition", the "Free Spirit Competition" as well as a documentary and a short film competition. Dirk von Jutrczenka, member of the Ecumenical Jury, reports about the festival.
On 8 October 2022, the INTERFILM General Assembly took place as an online meeting. After reports by President Julia Helmke, Jury Coordinator Dietmar Adler and Executive Director Karsten Visarius, the members elected the new INTERFILM Board and Presidency for the years 2022-2025.
