The Festival

The second Better World Film Festival (BWFF) from September 13–17, 2022, will invite filmmakers from all over the world, who seek solutions in an eroding world. All genres are admitted. There will be no time limit and no limitation of the production year. The selection will be made with an internet jury and in a strictly democratic manner.

Das erste Better World Film Festival (BWFF) vom 13. bis 17. September 2022 lädt Filmemacher aus aller Welt ein, die in einer erodierenden Welt nach Lösungen suchen. Alle Genres sind zugelassen. Es wird keine zeitliche Begrenzung und keine Einschränkung des Produktionsjahres geben. Die Auswahl wird mithilfe einer Internet-Jury und in streng demokratischer Weise getroffen. 

Submit your films:

BWFF is an international film festival and happy to present your work as no other festival does. We are curious and empathized to present your films and solutions for a better world. No limitations, no obligations and if you make it you will receive the high valuable Sunrise Award. Get your work to the best jury you can imagine: cinema lovers in the world wide web. If they choose your film, it will be screened as a winner in September 11th 2021 in one of the most beautiful locations in Germany. We will be very pleased to see you there.

Submit for jury:

BWFF is the first international film festival that is democratic, transparent and makes your personal voice heard. See films that are from far away or from around your corner and maybe never get the chance to find their audience even if they are more then worth it. If you are curious, if you like the unexpected and if you are tired of popcorn movies submit now to our jury. No obligations, no limitations, no schedule. Just see what you like and when you like and if you like. This is maybe the best opportunity to have a new and independent look on movies and the fabulous ideas of filmmakers to change the world to a better place. You choose the winners! And as a jury member you are automatically part of our Lucky Win Tombola with great prizes. And of course we will be happy to see you in beautiful Murnau.

The jury president is the internationally renowned filmmaker and producer Detlev F. Neufert (lives in Bangkok and on Lake Chiemsee, has made over 40 films for ARD, among others, TV broadcasts of his films worldwide, guest professor for film in Santa Barbara, California).

„Alle reden vom Internet, von Zoom-Foren und unbegrenzter Verfügbarkeit von Filmen – auch Dokumentarfilmen. Schön und gut, aber welche Filme gibt es? Wo findet man sie in der unendlichen Masse? Lost in cyberspace!

Deshalb brauchen wir Festivals wie dieses, um durch Gespräche und Vorführungen die im Verborgenen schlummernden Schätze ans Licht und ins Bewusstsein zu holen. Je unbekannter sie sind, umso wichtiger könnten sie sein!“
