2. Münchner Hörfilmtage
18.-20. März 2016 im Filmmuseum München
From 18-20 March 2016, we will be working in partnership with the Munich Film Museum: Filmmuseum München and the Deutschen Hörfilm gGmbH (who jointly launched this project in April 2015) to once again organise a small festival of audio-description films – the second "Münchner Hörfilmtage" ("Audio-Descriptive Film Days") – at the Munich Stadtmuseum.
The festival will present particularly successful recent audio-descriptive productions from German television, as well as current cinema releases and new audio-descriptive versions of films from the archive of the Film Museum. A panel session will see audio-description managers from several broadcasters and Martina Wiemers from the Deutsche Hörfilm gGmbH present the principles, criteria and perceptions of audio-description and discuss these with the audience (which will include blind, visually impaired and sighted members), based on the films presented during the festival.

We are delighted that the "Hörfilmtage" audio description festival contributed to the Filmmuseum München being awarded the Cinema Prize of the German association of film archives and cinematheques in 2017: Kinopreis des Kinematheksverbundes.
This prize highlights the work of municipal cinemas and cultural cinema initiatives, who stand for exceptional film programmes. "This prize honours their engagement and the continued development of cinemas as places of diversity, as cultural meeting points and cultural assets." The Munich Film Museum came second in the category "cinema in retrospect", earning a prize of 1,000 euros. In the jury's decision (cf. Süddeutsche Zeitung), they said: "The prize has been awarded to the Munich Film Museum, which has devoted itself to communicating international film history at a consistently high level, as well as breaking new ground with its audio description festival."
