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

The Norwegian film "Elskling" (Loveable) by Lilja Ingolfsdottir has won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury in Karlovy Vary 2024. The Crystal Globe, the festival's main prize, went to the British documentary "A Sudden Glimpse to Deeper Things" by Maurice Cousins.


There are some well-travelled cineastes and regular festival-goers who call Bologna their favourite festival. The atmosphere is relaxed and democratic, there is no VIP area, no stars who have to be shielded from the common people. The participants come from 70 countries, as is proudly noted. Final report by Peter Paul Huth.
When you see classic films on the big screen, you realise that the cinema is a time machine, a place of historical memory. A medium that makes the past visible through the subjective view of those involved in the film, because cinema is always a collective art form. Continuation of the report by Peter Paul Huth.
Peter Paul Huth reports on the film festival in Bologna dedicated to film history. The 2024 edition of the festival focussed on films featuring Marlene Dietrich.
