ICD 2020 POSTPONED to 2021

With great regret we have to inform you that the ICD can not take place as scheduled at 4th-5th May 2020!

To support the nationwide measures and with the aim of counteracting the further spread of the corona virus SARS-CoV-2 as far as possible, the International Cinematography Days 2020 will be postponed to next year at likely the same time. The cancellation of the ICD 2020 takes place in accordance with the protective measures of the state of Baden-Württemberg, Hochschule der Medien and FMX-conference.

We like to thank our partners, guests, contributers and friends for their efforts and appreciation of the necessary decision. We hope to be able to welcome you next year to our next edition of the ICD!

Best regards, Prof. Stefan Grandinetti
