ZURICH FILM FESTIVAL
Dates: September 22 – October 2, 2012
This glamorous film festival that began in 2005 as a local celebration has grown into a large-scale cultural event. Internationally renowned directors and superstars such as Morgan Freeman, Sylvester Stallone, Oliver Stone and Danny DeVito are just some of the stars who’ve graced the red carpet.
The aim of the Zurich Film Festival is to offer an insight into the work of upcoming filmmakers from around the world, and to initiate dialogue between established film creatives and the public. Young filmmakers compete for the Golden Eye in four international competition categories, and in addition to the competition, the Zurich Film Festival also screens the most recent film productions at its exclusive Gala Premiere evenings.
International sponsors such as Credit Suisse, Kuoni, Audi, American Airlines and Sony all reinforce the festival’s reputation as a high class cultural event. Fringe events and festive functions in renowned venues throughout the city offer an attractive environment for national and international guests, and offer a superb way to entertain clients.
With location benefits including the international airport, the many luxury hotels, the outstanding range of gastronomic restaurants on offer and the extensively digitalised cinemas, Zurich offers ideal conditions for a star-studded cultural event with an international flair.
