public Seminars and Events

The School  of Cinema is a place for film mediation. On offer are paedagogical workshops and academic seminars which are accompanied by film screenings at the cinema. Partners of the cooperation are Department 9, University of Bremen / Workgroup Film and Media Aesthetics as well as the Communal Cinema / CITY 46. Shows are open to anyone interested, either on a continuous basis or for singular programmes.

School of Vision

The seminar focusses on fundamental aspects of filmaesthetics. Referencing film stills and excerpts from film history the seminar tries to uncover what film and what cinema is.


The label film:art covers programmes of  "artistic" films, mainly experimental works, avant-garde films and forms of media art. see all film:art-Events

Wort_Laut - in other words

20:00: film:art 99 at CITY 46, Bremen

Words are the joint elements of this manifold programme: spoken word poetry, subtitles out of sync, banners and text plates, puns and associations.  always comical, sometimes satirical, even cynical the films and videos touch on subjects rooted in our everday society. We hear about the overtightened efficiency of delivery services, listen to the confessions of an ex-US president and his lover, read messages feeding on the black lives matter movement and watch the pompous political ritual of a royal speech reduced to its conventional clichés. Gender perfomance and relations, toxic masculinity and raciscm, powerlessness and self empowerment are topics that are being tackled in sharpened wordings.

the programm is part of the exhibition »Kay Rosen. NOW AND THEN« at Museum Weserburg, Bremen
Tue 16.01.2024, 20:00 h at CITY 46, curated and introduced by Christine Rüffert | Universität Bremen
