Grand Opening

We welcome our guests to a glass of bub- bles and the sounds of DJ Rocco Raùl in the charming garden in front of the Stadt- kino Basel. After a short welcoming spe- ech by Elisabeth Ackermann, the district president of Basel-Stadt, the film Casting (2017) will kick off the International Com- petition and thereby the festival itself in the presence of the director Nicolas Wacker- barth and the actor Andreas Lust, at 18.00 hrs at Stadtkino Basel. After the screening and the Q&A, Bildrausch and tibits jointly invite you to a reception with tasty snacks. At 21.15, Teresa Villaverde will present her debut film Alex, a poetic and painful journey into the long-suppres- sed recent history of her home country, Portugal. Meanwhile, DJ Rocco Raùl invites you to shake your legs to his fabulous spaghetti surf music on the Piazza and in the Bildrausch Salon.
