As the international film festivals in Mainz, the Arc Film Festival can be really fun, but don’t underestimate there is serious business taking place. The best way to cap off a day at the Arc Film Festival? Chatting about the day’s films over drinks with Festival staff, industry guests, and fellow Festival-goers, of course!
We try everything in our power to support the filmmakers who are visiting us. It's in our personal interest that our guests can get the most out of their festival experience. Maybe you are new into filmmaking or you just like to expand your horizon. Nevertheless this is the place where you can learn about "what's behind the film". Also visit our Scene Talks and get involved in exiting discussions.
