Music Film Contest
The international Music Film Contest of the Reeperbahn Festival
Reeperbahn Festival Music Film Contest
On the road in Latin America with the Rolling Stones. Sentenced to death in Iran for releasing a song. Life as a punk in Vienna’s underground scene. Twenty-four international music films show just how powerful and impactful music can be.
With its first ever Music Film Contest, Reeperbahn Festival, in partnership with the UNERHÖRT! Musikfilmfestival, is thrilled to be providing a platform for recent music films from Germany and beyond.
Never before has a glimpse behind the scenes been more honest, an artist’s life-story more gripping, or music more colourful and varied. For five days, filmmakers from all over the world will present their own personal connections to music and will engage directly with cinemagoers during Q&A sessions.
The festival’s film festivities kick off on 19 September 2017, the evening before the start of this year’s Reeperbahn Festival, at Hamburg’s Metropolis cinema with the screening of the opening film and the introduction of the contest’s distinguished jury. On Saturday, 23 September 2017, the jury will announce the lucky winner of the €2,500 prize for the best music film of the year.
So head to the participating cinemas – Metropolis, Studio Kino, and B-Movie in St. Pauli – and join in the music-film fun!
