Filmboard Karlsruhe e. V. / Independent Days | Internationales Filmfest
The Independent Days | International Filmfest (IDIF) takes place since 1998 in Karlsruhe at Schauburg Cinema. It is organized by Filmboard Karlsruhe e. V. which is seated at the so called "creative park" Alter Schlachthof. The Festival focuses on no- and low-budget productions from all over the world. There are no limitations regarding length or genre. Films may win several awards: Low-budget films may compete for the film award sponsored by the cultural foundation of Sparkasse Karlsruhe. No-budget filmmakers may receive the "Golden ID" sponsored by the City of Karlsruhe. Both award winners are being elected by the audience. There is also a special award given by the Festival's jury recognising extraordinary artistic work. Besides the award nominated films, there is the "Indierama" screening films out of competition.
