Welcome to HARD:LINE International Film Festival
Once a year, the international HARD:LINE Film Festival presents barriers and perspectives of extreme cinema and transforms Regensburg into a capital of genre and subculture. Together, films are seen, discussed, celebrated or condemned here. Over five days, contributions from the genres of horror, thriller and science fiction are shown, mostly at least as German premieres.
As a member of the Méliès International Festivals Federation (MIFF), the festival presents the coveted Méliès D'Argent Award for the best European short film entry. Many renowned guests from all over the world are invited to present their work in Regensburg and answer questions from the audience. HARD:LINE offers a platform for the darker side of cinema entertainment and presents border crossers of good taste, will-o'-the-wisps of popular genres or simply highlights beyond the mainstream.
HARD:LINE consistently celebrates the freest of all genres!
Admission to the events is strictly from the age of 18!
