Foresight Film Festival

The Foresight Filmfestival is the first science-vision festival that invites visionaries from research, film making, media, and society to
discuss the questions of “How do we want to live? How will we live?” It is also the opportunity to take a look into the future from both a technological
and societal standpoint and begin developing concrete visions together to shape the future.

The Foresight Filmfestival No. 3 is scheduled to take place in Halle (Saale) on October 26, 2017, starting at 6:00 p.m.. It will also be

Who Can Participate?

Your filmic answers to urgent, forward-looking questions concerning society and technology, in short: your vision – our world of tomorrow.
