ZF English

The Zurich Fiction Film Conference ZFICTION is an anual event of the Institute for the Performing Arts and Film in cooperation with the Subject Area Film of the Zurich University of the Arts ZHdK.

ZFICTION is a bilingual conference, offering talks both in German and English. A selection of the German talks is translated simultaneously into English.

Research and Film
The Research Focus Film of the ZHdK promotes practice-based research and a professional debate on current forms of filmmaking. Starting in 2020, the international documentary film conference ZDOK is joined by the fiction film conference ZFICTION. The twin conferences take place alternately every two years and seek to address relevant topics from different perspectives: Filmmakers present their works and give lectures on their distinctive attitudes and working methods, while film scholars examine the conference topic from a theoretical point of view. Discussion panels bring the two perspectives together.
