about us

The Munich Film Society (Muenchner Filmwerkstatt) is a non-profit association based in the Bavarian capital of Munich. Founded in 1995 to support, produce and exhibit independent, experimental, foreign and various other non-mainstream art films, the film society has grown from just film producing to fostering independent filmmaking in Munich and around and serves as a cornerstone in maintaining the local film industry. Today’s activities include workshops and other training activities for filmmakers.

Since 2008 we focus on further education in creative industries.
