“The relationships between all the different literary genres and the medium film are as diverse and persistent as film itself. Literary texts have always provided the basis especially for narrative films but for more experimental forms as well. LITFILMS does not only encourage but also demand discussion about the requirements and opportunities for literature films and offers a platform especially for artistically ambitious formats.”

Intermediate spaces’ is the guiding theme of the first festival edition. On the one hand, they refer to intermediality and media change within the process of cinematically adapting literary texts. On the other hand, they refer to an almost transcendent area: Two different kinds of art merge into a third, lines blur, and intermediate spaces become visible.”
