4. KLAPPE AUF! Short Film Festival 8.-10. November 2019
“The patronage of the short film festival, KLAPPE AUF!, is meaningful for me, as the festival actively defines inclusion in a comprehensive manner. This is not just about the self-evident proximity and sometimes co-existence of disabled and non-disabled peoples, but for a much broader goal: The respectful interaction of differences – whether physically, mentally, socially or culturally – being accepted and allowed to participate free from any exclusion criterion. A claim that is also reflected in the film selection which takes into account all film genres, from critical documentary films to playfully animated utopias of a better world. I am proud that such an exciting festival was launched in my hometown”.
