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 / in the Bildrausch Salon.

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.
