interfilm Festival

Special Guests

SP 01 Best of Zebra Poetry Film Festival

In 2002, Literaturwerkstatt and interfilm Berlin founded the Zebra Poetry Film Festival that has since grown to become the largest forum of its kind. Bringing together poetry and film as well as literati and cineastes, the Berlin-based festival is held every two years in close collaboration with interfilm and then goes on to travel the world. The 7th edition of Zebra ended in mid October 2014 and as always, interfilm will once again present their personal highlights with a particular focus on animated film. www.literaturwerkstatt.org
