With the Arc Film Festival we want to establish a new cultural event with focusing on the artist and his work. Compared to other audience based film festivals we want to build an unique place for inspiring meetings and where the interests of the filmmakers have priority. With the Arc-film festival in Mainz we create a platform for filmmakers and interested people to meet and have exciting discussions and inspiring interactions.


Although Mainz is an attractive media location in Germany not only because of the ZDF and the university of applied science for time-based media but also many film-makers live in this city, Rhineland-Palatinate is the only state in Germany with no federal film funding by now. So it´s even more important to offer a platform for movies and an opportunity to connect.
