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

The first festival year in Mannheim and Heidelberg of the new team under Sascha Keilholz had to take place in the digital space. Originally, physical performances were to take place in both cities in addition to the online offerings. The Ecumenical Jury awarded its Prize of 2.500 € to "Una promessa" by Gianluca and Massimiliano De Serio from Italy.
The 30th FilmFestival Cottbus was postponed to December and takes place both physical and online.


The winner of the “Look at me” Award of the Church Media Foundation at the Oulu International Children’s and Youth Film Festival 2020 is director Paul_Anders Simma and his documentary youth film "My Dear Mother".
This year’s festival edition was perhaps the first of its kind in history of Luebeck’s Nordic Film Days. After rapid changes in coronavirus pandemic developments in Europe it was decided that the festival moves completely online.
"Lola vers la mer" by Laurent Micheli won the Church of Sweden Youth Film Award 2020. A Commendation, accompanied by an INTERFILM diploma, went to "La inocencia" by Lucía Alemany.
