Here’s where you can meet them, our numerous international guests, the stars of today and tomorrow!

Of course, you can also talk to them at the Q&A sessions after the screenings in the cinemas. But the best opportunity at the IFFMH to meet actors, directors and the like from all over the world up close and personal is here: in our festival lounges in Mannheim and Heidelberg, with a drink or a snack in a casual setting and a convivial atmosphere. So feel free to come. It’s worth it. We look forward to seeing you – because the festival is not complete without you.
