The festival centre and meeting point for the public, industry and film guests is the festival tent at Allende-Platz, directly opposite the Abaton cinema. During the day, with its cosy Studio Hamburg Lounge, it is the perfect place to discuss the films or to meet filmmakers and guests of FILMFEST HAMBURG. Presentations, podium discussions and talks with directors take place in the festival tent. In the evening, FILMFEST HAMBURG invites you to join the after-show parties with changing themes, drinks, snacks and music. Entry is free.
