Grand Opening

We will be welcoming our guests with a glass of sparkling wine and the sounds of DJ Rocco Raùl in the charming garden landscape in front of the Stadtkino Basel. After a welcome by Esther Roth, the head of the department of cultural affairs of the canton of Basel-Landschaft, The Waldheim Waltz (2018) will open the International Competition programme, and thus the festival, at 18:00 at Stadkino Basel, in the presence of the director Ruth Beckermann. After the screening and the Q&A, Bildrausch and tibits invite you to drinks and a buffet of tasty snacks. At 21:15, Paul Schrader will present his directorial debut Blue Collar, an explosive blend of realism and genre elements which brilliantly captured the zeitgeist of the 1970s. Meanwhile, DJ Rocco Raùl invites you to dance to his fabulous spaghetti surf music on the Piazza.
