About Weihnachtsfilmfestival (Christmas Film Festival)

Europe’s only Christmas Film Festival presents the Christmas theme in all its wonderful and curious varieties. National and international feature films and short film programs bring a new light to the old-fashioned Christmas subject. Unconventional Christmas movies come to the foreground. Next to comedies also critical, tragic, satirical and scary movies are part of the program. Knowing that Christmas time polarizes many people, it is still worth to embrace the heartily ‘Spirit of Christmas’. In the dark season of the year the cinema turns into a magical place that makes you think, touches you and sometimes cast a smile on your face.
The Christmas Film Festivals festival is for those who want to escape the Christmas rush or do not have their loved ones around and of course passionate cinephiles. Let us spend peaceful and enjoyable holidays at the movies and take a fresh look at the usually so traditional Christmas time.



Moviemento is Germany’s oldest cinema, has 3 cinema halls, a cozy foyer and is the perfect venue for the Christmas Film Festival that takes place December 22 – 24, 2017.
