Six new feature films are invited to participate in this competition. They are based on literary works in a wide variety of ways, formally moving between narrative cinema and experiment, sometimes pushing the boundaries of adaptation.
The film screenings are partly accompanied by Q&As with the filmmakers and readings of the literary works they are based upon.
A jury will award the prize for the best adaptation, endowed with EUR 2,000. The jury members are: Barbara Fischer-Rittmeyer (Film curator), Sabrina Janesch (Writer), Hermann Wallmann (Chairman of Literaturverein Münster).
