The international competition wittnesses uprising filmmakers competing for the coveted Golden Eye the festival’s main award. In addition to the competition, we also present the latest films by renowned filmmakers as exclusive “Gala Premieres” or “Special Screenings”. Furthermore, the “New World View” series focuses upon the current cinematic oeuvre of a certain film region. “Border Lines” is a section dedicated to films dealing with border situations such as territorial, social and individual conflicts. “TVision focuses on the latest, most innovative TV formats. Numerous side events, such as the “Zurich Master Class“, the “Zurich Summit“, and the “Film Music Competition” complete the festival programme.
The Zurich Film Festival began in October 2005 and became firmly established upon the national and international festival landscape within a very short period of time. The festival continues to grow rapidly. In 2014, about 79’000 visitors and more than 500 accredited journalists attended the screenings.
In the spring of 2005, Karl Spoerri, Nadja Schildknecht and Antoine Monot, Jr. founded Spoundation Motion Picture GmbH, which has since been responsible for implementing the Zurich Film Festival and is currently managed by Karl Spoerri and Nadja Schildknecht. Karl Spoerri is the ZFF’s Artistic Director.
Theatres 1 – 6 at the cinema Plaza in Zurich’s district 4 provided the venues for the 1st Zurich Film Festival (October 5 – 9, 2005). The festival focussed on “Debuts” and screened approx. 8 premieres in one competition category. Further film line-ups included “Debut Classics” and “Züri Bellevue”. The first festival was well received by the public and attracted 8’000 visitors – the press and film industry reacted with initial scepticism towards the young event.
The 2nd Zurich Film Festival (October 2 – 6, 2006) took place in 2006 at the cinemas corso, Academy and Frosch – the Golden Eye was awarded for the first time in three competition categories (Young Feature Film, Young Documentary Film and Debut Feature Film). Additions to the programme included the ‘New World View’ line-up. The 2nd Zürich Film Festival attracted 18’000 visitors and 600 accredited film industry representatives.
The young festival took a huge leap forward in 2007 by extending its duration to 11 days – the festival’s current length. The films of the 3rd Zurich Film Festival(September 27 to October 7) were screened in the cinemas corso, Capitol, Frosch, Movie and Le Paris located along Zürich’s ‘Film Mile’. More than 50 world, European or Swiss premieres were presented at cinemas distributed along the quayside of Zürich’s river Limmat. The number of visitors rose within three years to 27’000. The Zurich Film Festival boasted a new Festival Centre located in the very heart of the city: A large marquee at Rathausplatz became the meeting point for cinema lovers and film workers. 2007 saw the festival programme expand to include the Zürich Coproduction Forum.
Zurich Film Festival continued to develop in the years between 2008 and 2012, with visitor numbers more than doubling. The cinemas ‘corso’ and ‘Le Paris’ have been the festival’s main screening venues for several years now; the cinema Arena Filmcity joined this list in 2011.
In 2009, Zurich Film Festival suffered a particularly unfortunate blow, which not only cast a shadow over the festival, but also made it known around the globe. Honorary guest Roman Polanski was arrested on arrival in Switzerland and held under house arrest for nine months. He returned to the Zurich Film Festival in 2011 to pick up his award two years later than planned.
In 2011, the Zurich Film Festival was offered guest rights by the city of Zurich to use the Sechseläutenwiese, where a new Festival Centre was erected. The Zurich Opera House became the new venue for the glamorous Award Night. The 2011 Zurich Film Festival attracted 51’000 visitors.
With the onedotzero section, Zurich Film Festival began bringing the most important and innovative festival in the field of digital film to Zürich in 2005. Even as a small independent film festival, the London-based creators were showing works by Spike Jonze, Michel Gondry and Chris Cunningham, long before their names were made known to a wider audience. onedotzero_ch was the Swiss edition of the British festival, which took place within the framework of the Zurich Film Festival until 2011.
The ZFF added two films for children aged 6 and older, and two films for primary school children to its programme for the first time in 2012. Visitor figures reached a record 58’000.
With a total of 71’000 visitors, of these 4000 children and students, the festival has seen a more than 20% increase in viewer numbers in 2013. With 345 screenings of 122 film titles and some 450 national and international guests, Zurich Film Festival has once again experienced considerable growth.
The Zurich Film Festival continues on the road to success. With some 79’000 visitors in 2014, the festival’s anniversary edition saw a renewed increase in ticket sales by 11%. The 10th ZFF offered 145 films and 374 screenings. The very first‚ ZFF 72 Talent Contest’ was a huge success. A total of 235 individuals or crews of young filmmakers from eleven countries made a short film and submitted it to the contest.
