11 APRIL 2006

In times of the globalization, the migration of people cross the world due to political, religious, ethnic and economical reasons, when the emancipation of the genders is advanced in certain countries & cultures, in others however, suppressed and persecuted, the questions of one’s identity, defining oneself opposed to others becomes necessary in order to survive.

“Identityscapes” has its starting point in the identity of the genders as the roots of each society. Through the variety of different approaches and definitions a rich, colourful landscape of human identities becomes visible via the artistic reflections manifested in the moving pictures.

The festival, however, is no local phenomenon, but due to its online status it has got global relevance and can be accessed for free at any place under the conditions of a broad bandwidth Internet connection.

Screenings in physical space will follow at a later stage at Cologne and many other places.

The film festival is featuring 40 shortfilms and videos of a duration between 1 and 15 minutes, selected and curated by Agricola de Cologne.
