Grand Opening

The guests are welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine and the sounds of DJ Tai Share in the charming garden landscape in front of the Stadtkino Basel. At 18.00 hrs, the proceedings continue in the Stadtkino Basel. After a welcome by Catherine Ann Berger, the managing director of Swiss Films, the director Susanne Heinrich will introduce the screening of Aren’t You Happy? (2019), which opens the International Competition and thereby also the festival. After the screening and the Q&A, Bildrausch and tibits invite you to a reception. At 21:15 hrs, we are screening the second competition film Anons, a venomous political satire about a coup d’état, whose absurdity is surpassed by reality itself. In the meantime, DJ Tai Share invites you to show off your best dance moves on the Piazza.

The Bildrausch Festival Bag

In 2017, Bildrausch in cooperation with Fachmaturitätsschule (FMS) for the first time presented a bag that was specially made for the festival. No question: in 2018, we once again want to delight our guests with the much-coveted bags. The graduation class 3E Design/Art of FMS Basel developed a new format after analysing the needs of festival visitors and the design of other festival bags, had critical discussions and tested prototypes, before making a limited production of 80 bags.
