Another year without Festivals

For many years, the first half of the year at Rixfilm has been structured by festivals. Our annual cycle begins in February with the Berlinale, in March follows the Film Festival Turkey Germany which is co-curated by Frank Becher, in May the International Animated Film Festival in Stuttgart and it ends finally in June with a few nice days in Annecy. Now we are in our second year without these festivals. Honestly, we miss them. All attempts to hold the festivals online are ok.

Later, we received an honourable mention from the IELA Awards, as well as the 2020 eLearning Award for two blended learning programmes that we created with and for proaktiv Management.
