Openscreen @ Colpach Castle in Colpach-Bas

The Colpach castle is one of the cradles of the European idea. Here Lady Aline Mayrisch de Saint-Hubert arranged Franco-German encounters and worked relentlessly between the two world wars to overcome borders. Guests included Walther Rathenau, André Gide, Jacques Rivière, Otto Bartning and Théo van Rysselberghe.

We sincerely hope that you will join us in the beautiful setting of the castle and its gardens, where you'll be able to enjoy Openscreen, Kappkino & more. So, whether you want to join us as a guest and/or have material to be projected, played, listened-to or displayed, do get in touch with us.

What is Openscreen?

In a nutshell...

  • We organise movie screenings that are open to everyone.
  • No curation or selection of films. All films submitted are shown.
  • Our events are not competitions. There are no prizes or juries.
  • Max 20 minute film length
  • No hate or pornography allowed.
  • New exciting venue each time.
  • Free of charge for audience members and film-makers alike.

Background and philosophy...

We're open. Since hosting our first event in 2004, Openscreen has provided a stage for film-makers to experiment and try out new ideas. We set no criteria for the theme, style or genre of the work submitted. These are entirely up to the film maker. What we do provide are exciting venues and the instant feedback of a live audience. As we do not select or curate the work shown at our events, both the audience and the those submitting films can expect to experience the unexpected.

For everyone. Over the years we have screened home-cooked movies by first time film-makers as well as the work of seasoned industry professionals. All this makes for a exciting events where new points of view are expressed and interesting conversations are started between film-makers and the live audience.

Open to all

There are no age or geographical restrictions. Everyone is welcome to submit a movie.

Fun format

Max 20 minutes. All subject matters okay (except hate, discrimination, pornography etc).

Great Venues

Each event is hosted at a new and exciting venue

Not a competition!

We do not give out any prizes or judge the movies shown.
