Cinema & Art Couples

KINO DER KUNST is a worldwide unique combination of film festival and art exhibition that investigates the connection between visual art and cinema; its programmatic focus lies on how cinematographic artists approach fiction and narration. The international competition presents cinematic works in which artists apply formal innovation and a highly aesthetic visual language without losing sight of the serious issues of our time.


The next edition of KINO DER KUNST will be held in spring 2020. This unique blend of festival and exhibition with films by visual artists is the only one of its kind in the world. Taking place in Munich every two years, its sensitive issue in 2020 will be “Forbidden Beauty”.
