The LICHTER Film Festival Frankfurt International is a celebration of and for film. Carried by a high-quality regional as well as international programme, it shines a light on the facets of film art that too often miss out in the everyday of cinema and television.

Founded in 2008 by a group of filmmakers and film fans, it has developed from an event for a few from a pledged community in a homemade cinema housed in a studio to an integral part of the (supra-)regional culture.

In 2017, LICHTER celebrated its 10th anniversary and proved once more how big the region’s need is to bring them, the audience, the creatives and guests from all over the world together.
