THE NEW NORMAL:
The ongoing restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic do not allow planning the screening day or the gala for the awards ceremony in 2021.
Cancelled. Both festivals take place May 27, 2020 in Hamburg, Germany's media metropolis. Celebrate with your team, your client, your production company, in short, all those who have contributed to your success.
Coming together to recognize creativity will always be important and an international media festival like this one is the place to do so. So why not begin the day with a good cup of coffee? Meet and greet collegues and clients from different countries, watch a selection of WorldMediaFestival awarded films on the cinema screen.
Be inspired by other creative work and personalities. The WorldMediaFestivals encourage and create dialogue between like-minded people and can open new avenues for you. You are very welcome to participate at all festival events.

He is Executive Producer and owner of Koenigsfilm, an agency producing film and video for marketing communications winning more than 60 international Awards.
