Programmrelease Teil 2: Transit präsentiert CINEMA_UTOPIA

Nach Monaten der Vorbereitung zwischen Euphorie und Unsicherheit präsentieren wir euch stolz das Herzstück unserer diesjährigen Festivalausgabe: Unser Weekender CINEMA_UTOPIA zeigt innovative, maßgebende und kontroverse Produktionen der aktuellen Kino- und Festivalsaison. Sie alle eint die Liebe für Gedankenspiele im Kinosaal und die Vorstellung vom Kino als Ort für Utopien. Bis der Vorverkauf startet, kann das komplette Programm hier studiert werden.


Fast alle Filme, Events und Gespräche mit den Filmemacher*innen bieten wir auch online an – Infos hierzu folgen in Kürze.

Programmrelease Teil 1: Transit präsentiert RETRO_UTOPIA

Die historische Filmreihe RETRO_UTOPIA bildet den Auftakt unserer diesjährigen Festivalausgabe INTERMISSION_UTOPIA. Um aus der langen Pause heraus nach vorne schauen zu können, blicken wir erstmal zurück: Auf große und kleine Möglichkeitsvisionen menschlichen Zusammenlebens, alternativer Lebenswelten und künftiger Gesellschaftsformen. 

An sieben Terminen zeigen wir Filme, die sich auf ihre eigene Art den Themenkomplexen Mensch, Macht, Identität, Technologie, Natur, race, class und gender verschreiben. Uns interessiert: Welche utopischen oder dystopischen Versprechen wurden damals verar­beitet? Wie haben sich diese Kategorien und die Dimensionen des Wünschens, Träumens, Wollens und Han­delns verändert? Und was schließen wir daraus für unser Hier und Jetzt?

Hier gehts zum RETRO_UTOPIA Programm!

Impressionen vom Gründungsfest

Bei bestem Spätsommerwetter, Filterkaffee und Glücksspiel feierte der Hör & Schau e.V. am Samstag, den 05.09. sein Gründungsfest in der Kinokneipe am Ostentor. Danke an alle Supporter*innen – Es war uns ein Fest!

Hör & Schau e.V. foundation party – Support your local cultural association!

The Hör & Schau e.V. Regensburg says hello!
In January 2020 an enthusiastic collective of media scientists, students and film enthusiasts founded the non-profit Hör & Schau e.V. in Regensburg. The aim is to carry former Heimspiel into the future as Transit Filmfest and to promote audiovisual art and culture in the city. On 05.09.2020, the association will introduce itself at a late but corona-suitable foundation fest and is looking forward to interested visitors!
On Saturday, September 5th at 15h, the club party starts in the beer garden of Kinokneipe with filter coffee, homemade (vegan) cake and a raffle. In the evening the party continues with Afghan food, vegan fried sausage croissants and the audiovisual live installation SYNESTHESIA by Kontroverse & Kaamosydin. You can also stock up on hot festival merchandise. It’s gonna be lovely!

(The hygiene regulations of Kinokneipe apply. The number of seats is limited, so don’t be late!)

Transit20: INTERMISSION_UTOPIA

Manifold and contradictory forces are currently affecting us, the world and cinema itself. Transit Filmfest (formerly Heimspiel) meets this strange year 2020 with the festival edition INTERMISSION_UTOPIA!
As part of the historical film series RETRO_UTOPIA, we will be looking back on known and lesser-known visions of human coexistence, alternative and diverse lived environments, and future social forms. In terms of the program of our weekend edition CINEMA_UTOPIA, we have our eye on contemporary films that tackle the concepts of utopia and dystopia in the broadest possible sense, and research them immersively and/or informatively in all their emotional, metaphorical, philosophical and socio-political manifestations. At the panel discussion FORUM_UTOPIA we will talk with filmmakers, theorists, activists, scientists and other people about how we can fight for as fair a Transit as possible into a better future.

Nothing is set in stone, everything is in Transit!

TRANSIT-Interview: Martin Lischke


Hinweis: Externes Video von YouTube ℹ

COVID-19 has temporarily shut down the film industry. Shootings have been interrupted, cinemas are in a struggle for survival, film starts are postponed. The latter also affects Christian Klandt’s Leif in Concert -- Vol. 2.
In this TRANSIT interview, our last year’s guest, producer Martin Lischke, makes one thing clear despite all the uncertainty: The film belongs on the screen!
On demand and above all on CD and vinyl, however, the unique soundtrack of the film is now available in advance. The currently so strongly missed pub atmosphere is guaranteed!
Until Leif in Concert -- Vol. 2 finally runs in the cinema, listen to Spotify, buy the record and support the team! --> EDIT: In theaters from July 16!

Familiar faces at the German Film Awards 2020

SYSTEMSPRENGER producer Peter Hartwig in Q&A with Leonie Barta at HEIMSPIEL IM TRANSIT

On April 24th the 70th presentation of the German Film Awards took place. Edin Hasanovic led wonderfully through a grandly staged live show, which is unparalleled in these times.
Many well-known HEIMSPIEL faces were to be seen: Among the laudators were our former guests Iris Berben (HS 10) and Academy President Ulrich Matthes (HS 6).
Nominated, but unfortunately came away empty-handed were the documentaries Schlingensief: A Voice That Shook the Silence by Bettina Böhler (HS 8), Undine by Christian Petzold (HS 1, 4 and 10) with Franz Rogowski (HS 6 and 7) and the HEIMSPIEL IM TRANSIT films Heimat is a Space in Time, filmed by Stefan Neuberger (HiT) and Pelican Blood (HiT).
The absolute winner of the evening was HEIMSPIEL IM TRANSIT-Film System Crasher Nora Fingscheidt. In a total of eight categories – including Best Film, Best Screenplay and Best Director – the gripping social drama won the Lola. Congratulations not least to the producer and our last year’s guest Peter Hartwig!
Last but not least the unique Edgar Reitz (HS 7) was awarded this year’s honorary prize!
We congratulate all nominees and winners from the bottom of our hearts!
