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

The Iranian film "Keyke mahboobe man" (My Favourite Cake) by Maryam Moghaddam and Behtash Sanaeeha has won the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury for a film in the International Competition at the 74th Berlinale. The film was also awarded by the Jury of International Film Critics (Fipresci). The Golden Bear went to the documentary film "Dahomey" by French director Mati Diop.


Georgian director Otar Iosseliani, a great poet of cinema, died on 17 December 2023 at the age of 89. Due to Soviet censorship, he emigrated to France in 1982, where he made his most famous film in 1984: "Les favoris de la lune" (The Favourites of the Moon). Film critic Andrey Plakhov, who now lives in Germany, pays tribute to his work.
