This page provides links to upcoming conferences, symposia, calls for papers, festivals, talks and other events loosely defined as related to German-language film. This includes German-language films as well as some transnational films; and events that take place in areas where German is spoken. 


These are events that the GSSN is aware of, but not necessarily involved in. The list below is not comprehensive and any omissions are accidental. Please contact us if you have an event you would like us to consider including. It is a work in progress and your feedback is welcome!
