The coronavirus pandemic entails a deep rupture in our lives and habits. Filmakademie too had to close its doors for the summer semester, develop online curricula for students and hygiene plans for filming and seminars. New challenges for the autumn are unfortunately already waiting in view of the rising number of cases. This makes great demands on all those involved. Not only on Filmakademie and the film industry, but also on the entire cultural scene.

I am all the more pleased about every event that takes place during the crisis, be it on-site or online. Particularly so if one of these events is Raumwelten, with which we have been in a close partnership for years. I wish the organising team an exciting event with a large (virtual) audience and all of us a lot of patience in difficult times.
