Neue Festival-Daten: 11.–15. Januar 2023 +++ new festival dates: January 11–15, 2023 +++ 


The Norient Festival explores the contemporary world through music and sound. We search films that portray musicians, music, sound, or noise as seismographs of our time, and speak of the possibilities and challenges of the now. We screen documentaries mainly, but are open to feature films, short movies, video art, and experimental formats. Our goal is to nominate films that are getting close to people and phenomena. Films screened at the Norient Festival have won important awards or were nominated at major international A festivals, some have been produced very DIY and low budget. We are especially interested in films by filmmakers from outside of Europe and the US.
