The ArteKino Festival presents 12 European films online
Nocturnal by Nathalie Biancheri

Cultural and linguistic diversity, fiction and documentary views on a world in full metamorphosis, travel and curiosity: launched in 2016 with the support of Europe Créative in order to promote and circulate young European auteur cinema, the ArteKino Festival is back for its 6th edition which will take place from 1 to 31 December. On the menu are 12 feature films (9 of which are by female directors) which internet users can access directly on arte.tv/artekinofestival and on the YouTube channel ARTE Cinéma. The programme is available in 32 countries and in six languages (French, German, English, Italian, Spanish and Polish).

Two prizes (worth €20,000 and €10,000 respectively) will be awarded: Internet users will be able to vote for the Public Prize and the Youth Jury Prize will be awarded by a panel of 15 Europeans aged between 18 and 25.

For the record, the ArteKino Foundation (which runs the festival) also supports feature film projects through the ArteKino International Prize, a development grant awarded at a dozen major film festivals. In addition, with ArteKino Sélection, a film or a cycle is offered free of charge each month on arte.tv and Arte's YouTube cinema channel. Finally, in the second half of 2022, Artekino will be enriched by a new section with ArteKino Classics, which will allow the discovery of rare or essential titles from the history of great European cinema.
