New Talents

A startup program in Production, Directing, Camera, Edit, Sound, Acting.
We start with instructions, practical exercises and talk circles in the first week. In the second week participants will be able to put knowledge into practice. Under the guidance of professionals in Camera, Sound, Edit and with the help of feedback rounds they will be producing fictional films, documentaries and music videos.


Our other programmes include a concept for young people that will take place in cooperation with the Fabmobil. An excerpt from their diverse offer:The Fabmobil connects young smartphone professionals with work-experienced and partly retired technology experts in intergenerational offers – in this way, a long-term and intergenerational learning process can be created. The mobile character of the project creates a closer network of the cultural and educational venues spread throughout the region. 

For day visitors and people with an affinity for art and technology, we have also prepared two theme days in the second week on the use of artificial intelligence, the Anthropocene and socio-political engagement. 

As a crowning finale to the first week, we are also hosting the music festival Rashomon Festival with two floors and
20 acts. We are happy about the close cooperation with the Zukunftsvisionen-Festival and the Meta Solis e.V..
