Anniversary Film Fest 2017 – this is how it went!

With over 2.000 guests, WITHOUT BOARDERS once again clearly lured more film fans to the ‘culture barn’ than the previous year. ‘Good news’ was not only the motto of the festival but also the echo of the top-class movie schedule and the numerous prominent guests. From the outset at the grand opening on Friday evening we were able to  greet Ronald Zehrfeld with his team from ‘Motorcircus’, that helped present his project ‘Mission South/ Ärzte helfen e.V’.

As a child of Jewish parents who barely escaped deportation, Troller has as long as he can remember had a great interest in people and their history which made them who they were. In the 60s Troller reported for the Paris Journal. For over 20 years) he brought personal descriptions alive for ZDF (‘Second German Television’).
