CologneOFF VI – Let’s Celebrate!!
5 Years CologneOFF – Cologne Online Film Festival

In 2010, CologneOFF – Cologne Online Film Festival
is celebrating its 5th anniversary – a good reason to try the new festival concept as a networked festival, including a networked jury, networked contributions and a series of networked screenings between September and December 2010 and beyond.

CologneOFF – founded in 2006 by Wilfried Agricola de Cologne as a new type of film and video festival dedicated to art forms of film and video in a global context – is following a successful concept of a festival without a static location of its own.
It does not last just 2 or 3 days a year, but is all the year everyday 24 hours available to the audience online and simultaneouslöy via physical screenings in cooperation with partner festivals.

This independance of availabliity on one hand, and dependance on networking partners makes CologneOFF most attractive not only o the audience, but basically also to the participating artists/directors and their films and videos due to a lasting promotion, confidence and trust.

After 5 successful festival editions, i.e
CologneOFF I – “Identityscapes” – 2006
CologneOFF II – “Image vs Music” – 2006
CologneOFF III – “Toon! Toon! – art cartoons & animated narriatives” – 2007
CologneOFF IV – “Here We Are! – 2008
CologneOFF V – Taboo! Taboo? – 2009

and their physical manifestations 2006-2010 – in New Dehli/India, Rotterdam/NL, Maracaibo/Venezuela, Rosario/Argentina, Lyon/France, Belgrade/Serbia, Szeczin/Poland, Brussels/Belgium, Istanbul/Turkey, Guadaljara/Mexico, Athens/Greece, Sarajevo/Bosnia-Hercegovia, Thessaloniki/Greece, Clermont-Ferrand/France, Jakarta/Indonesia, Hong Kong/ China, Bristol/UK and many more –
