Schedule of Events

Energy shortages, inflation, the war in Ukraine and an expected renewed rise in corona numbers – these are the issues on people’s minds here in Germany. A confusing situation that makes forward planning very difficult. A lack of planning certainty means that we cannot guarantee our guests the event we would like to host for them. It is with a heavy heart, that the WorldMediaFestivals 2023 will take place without the personal participation at the Screening Day and the Awards Ceremony Gala.

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.
