Decocooning Society öffnet Genregrenzen und Filterblasen, zeigt keine Larven und keine hässlichen Schwäne, sondern den Teich der Schmetterlinge im Garten der Pfade, die sich verzweigen. Decocooning Society macht weiter, macht Gegenwartsklänge hörbar, das pulsierende Kontinuum der Subkulturen, die vergessene Utopie hinter der Endzeit der Demokratien, Räume, Energien, Bewegungen, Ekstasen, Konzentration, Rückzug, Widerstand und Hedonismus. Es wird gerockt, gedröhnt, geravet, gedubbet, besprochen, footgeworked, zerlegt, zerrissen, geschnitten, gekratzt, visionisiert, visualisiert, Hände in die Höh und den Kopf in den Tanz. read more

Here at IFFI, our love for film comes first. But there is more to the festival than just that. Each year we work with a diverse team of programmers, writers and designers to deliver the festival. As the 2018 event looms ever closer, we would like to introduce them to you to offer a behind-the-scenes look at IFFI.

One such talented team member is Lucia Pola, a graphic designer from Slovakia who has been creating the IFFI visuals for the past three years. Lucia likes to take an innovative approach to design, through a combination of analogue and digital technology. This year, the result is a unique image that reflects the surrounding mountains of Innsbruck and incorporates the art of film making. read more

    We proudly present this year’s award sculptures made by the tyrolian artist Alois Schild!

    The sculptures are named “HOFFNUNGSVOLLE STRAHLENQUELLEN” and they symbolise the power, the meaning, the necessity and the importance of the film makers throughout the world, their destinies, their sufferings, their amours and their calls; the film makers who take us with them into their life…
