School screenings

Spend educational hours at the cinema!

Pedagogically valuable films regularly make it into our programme, which can be integrated excellently into the school curriculum or can offer valuable education even without this framework. In the following list you will find current and upcoming films that are particularly suitable for student screenings. Of course, it is possible for all film titles to have a student screening at special conditions.

School screenings are to be understood as an educational event, i.e. the performances are usually played without an intermission and without consumption.

If you are interested in a student screening, please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or phone 041 726 10 90.



Release date:

By Aldo Gugolz, with Franz Hohler, Big Zis.

SYNOPSIS AVAILABLE IN GERMAN ONLY - Tauche ein „zmitzt“ in die faszinierende Welt unseres Dialekts und entdecke, warum er trotz der Globalisierung weiterhin blüht. Vor 160 Jahren, während des “Eisenbahnzeitalters”, fürchtete die Deutschschweiz den Verlust ihres Dialekts zugunsten des Hochdeutschen. Doch heute erleben wir das Gegenteil – der Dialekt bleibt lebendig und vielfältig.
Begegne herausragenden Mundartkünstlerinnen und Künstlern wie Franz Hohler und Big Zis. Sie und andere Personen aus Wissenschaft, Politik, Musik und Dörfern setzen sich im Film OMEGÄNG auf einzigartige und akribische Weise mit unserem Dialekt auseinander. Von Bühnen über Kellerräume bis zu den majestätischen Alpen – diese Menschen alle tragen dazu bei, dass unsere Sprache weiterhin gedeiht.

By Christopher Zalla, with Eugenio Derbez, Daniel Haddad, Jennifer Trejo.

ho will the sixth grade students at Jose Urbina Lopez Elementary in Matamoros become? They are among the worst performing students in Mexico, the world they know is one of violence and hardship, and their classrooms are dominated by an atmosphere of overbearing discipline, not possibility. It might seem like a dead end... but it is also the perfect place for new teacher Sergio Juarez to try something different. There's just one problem: Sergio has no idea what he's doing.



Release date: 04 April 2024

By Paola Cortellesi, with Paola Cortellesi, Valerio Mastandrea, Romana Maggiora Vergano, Emanuela Fanelli.

Delia is the wife of Ivano and mother of three. Wife and mother. She finds it only natural that these two roles define her. It is the mid-1940s in Rome, and this is an ordinary family living in a city that struggles to find a balance between the positive momentum triggered by the Liberation and the misery the war left in its aftermath. Ivano is the undisputed master of the family. He makes barely enough, but he works hard to keep a roof over their heads and feels entitled to remind everyone of who is the breadwinner in the household. Sometimes just with nasty words, some others with the aid of his belt. His cranky father, Ottorino is the only person he respects. The spiteful elder needs round-the-clock care, and Deliais the only one to provide it. The highlight of her day is the time spent with her confidant and dear friend, Marisa. Come springtime, the family is excited about the imminent engagement of their beloved firstborn, Marcella, to her middle-class boyfriend, Giulio. Little do they know that the girl’s greatest hope is to marry fast and finally break free. Delia sees a suitable wedding for her daughter as a life goal. Until one day, a mysterious letter arrives and fires up her courage to overturn all plans and start wishing for a better life, not only for herself.
