Sponsoring for the 8th German-Russian Cinema Forum "KinoHafen" (Port of Cinema)
For eight years we have been organizing the annual cinema forum "KinoHafen". For one week we show you the latest films from Eastern Europe in the cinema "Metropolis", offer workshops, organize round tables and panel discussions. Our event is attended by renowned guests: famous actors, directors and other artists. In recent years, the Kinoforum has grown close to the hearts of many Hamburgers. Every year we are visited by 3000 spectators. From year to year it was our goal to create something lasting and impressive with the Kinoforum. But this year, the Kinoforum is on the verge of collapse. And that is why we urgently need your support.
Our event is made possible annually by the commitment of volunteers and is not commercial. Unfortunately, it was no longer possible for us to obtain the necessary funding from the city of Hamburg. In order to maintain this popular format, we are now dependent on private financing.
German-Russian Kinoforum Hamburg is a development of the International Alternative Cultural Movement "RockFront" e.V. (I.A.K),
as an independent member of "JunOst e.V." - Association of Russian-speaking Young People in Germany and "djo" Deutsche Jugend in Europa Landesverband Schleswig-Holstein e.V. as well as through cooperation with FreiwilligenBörseHamburg.
Our objective is the integration, promotion and networking of German-Russian art and culture. Our aim is to make the world of theatre, music and art accessible to as many young people with different cultural backgrounds as possible at the local level. We want to give young immigrants in Hamburg many opportunities to spend their free time in a meaningful way, to learn the German language better and to get to know new people in their immediate environment. Through public music and theatre performances, we also want to draw attention to the life situation and problems of young immigrants in Hamburg.
We want:
to create a good role model for young people and young adults through cooperation with creative artists and musicians and to distract them from aimless pastimes through active leisure activities. Important topics are discussed such as: Art and music as multicultural medium against racism and discrimination, freedom of persons and speech, as well as artistic freedom. By means of interactive workshops we strive for international understanding in all areas and give the opportunity to develop through music, art and theatre.
