Festival Overview

About the Festival :

Let us take you on a journey. A journey along the roads that once connected the distant lands of East, South and Western Asia with the Mediterranean and European world. A journey that once ensured not only trade but cultural exchange and international understanding.

Today, more than two thousand years after it originated, we invite you to travel along the Silk Road with us. We aspire to continue the Silk Road cultural heritage which in its heyday sustained a multicultural collaboration that strung together diverse groups. Just like the silk moth weaves webs into luxurious fabrics, so do the silk routes entwine ideas and philosophies, fostering multicultural interaction.

The Silk Road Film Festival welcomes films from countries which were part of those historical network of ancient trade routes.

Apart from film screenings, the SRFF will feature premieres, exhibitions, panels, chats with industry guests, free courses and workshops. The Festival events, like the postal stops along the ancients routes, will ensure smooth and speedy passage through those countries and guarantee a multifaceted and comprehensive journey through the cinema, art and culture of the region.
