Digital Filmfest in a Golden Mirror Hall

- New date of the Bitfilm Festival Hamburg: Oktober 6 - 7, 2010
- New venue: Mirror Hall of the Museum for Applied Arts, Hamburg
- Submissions until August 31 at

In 2010, the Bitfilm Festival Hamburg will take place at the Mirror Hall of the Museum for Applied Arts on October 6 - 7.

"We reach most people through our Internet Festival, but its closing event in the real world is still very important to us", explains the festival's director Aaron Koenig. "The more digital and virtual our lives become, the more we appreciate the charm of real-life places. Therefore we are very happy about our partnership with the Hamburg Museum of the Applied Arts, which enables us to use this luxurious venue."

Having used the Mojo Club, Schmidt's Theatre and the Planetarium Hamburg as its main venues in the past year, again Bitfilm takes place in a location that is rather unusual for a film festival.

During the day, experts will present new projects in stereo 3D production and interactive television to a professional audience. At night the general public will get an overview of the best digital films of the year and the winners of the Bitfilm Awards.

The motto of Bitfilm's online film competition this year is Money & Me. The most popular films selected by the Internet audience will be compiled to form a full-length feature film. The frame story that unites all short film entries will be produced by Bitfilm itself and co-funded by the Hamburg Filmferderung. Deadline for
submission is August 31. Like every year since 2003, the Bitfilm Festival is funded
by Hamburg's Authority for Culture, Sports and Media.

You will find the full programme from early September onwards at
