Annual Aarhus Film Festival

The Annual Aarhus Film Festival is an annual film Festival that supports and showcases international independent cinema. Taking place since 2019, the fresh and unconventional film festival has brought dozens of upcoming and established filmmakers to the spotlight. We choose the city’s unique art cinema, Øst for Paradis for our screening, aiming to support local cinemas with a long history to share.

Our screening programmes cover a wide range of themes with short and feature films and documentaries.

The Annual Aarhus Film Festival is organised by HFP, a pioneer organisation that runs Film Festivals and other events showcasing and championing ideas of diversity. Through our global series of film Festivals that spread over 13 countries, we open the path to voices with a compelling story to share. Our main mission is to honour independent cinema and establish a network of artists eager to join forces and spread their work across all nations. HF runs 25 film Festivals worldwide.
