The third edition of St.Moritz Art Film Festival will be held in St.Moritz, Switzerland from 12 to 15 September 2024.
The application was open to all arthouse movies or videos of different genres, lengths and targets with the aim of innovating and demonstrating creative originality in relationship to the annual theme Meanwhile Histories.

Each film will be preceded and accompanied by public encounters and conversations with directors, actors and personalities from the world of art and culture.

Meanwhile Histories is the opportunity to challenge the dominant narratives and perspectives that have shaped our understanding of history. By acknowledging the existence of parallel histories and alternative temporalities, we can uncover the stories and experiences that have been overlooked or silenced.
