About B3:

Since 2013, the B3 Biennial has determined the cross-genre and transnational discourse on trends and developments in the moving image in the thematic fields of film, art, games and XR/VR. National and international artists and media professionals speak out on the future of storytelling in the digital age.

The aim of B3 is, on the one hand, to create a broad interdisciplinary alliance for the moving image and, on the other hand, to offer the international cultural and creative industries a comprehensive platform for innovation and exchange. In the context of the major national and international film and media festivals, art biennials, technology congresses and trade fairs, it has thus acquired a special position, as it very successfully initiates a wide-ranging dialogue across sectors and genres.

As a cross-media moving image festival with film screenings, exhibitions, conference and workshop programmes, including competition formats, it addresses professionals from the creative and media industries, business, politics, science and the interested public as target groups.

The B3 has changing main themes (B3 Focus) to provide a framework for the content: Expanded Narration (2013), Expanded Senses (2015), On Desire (2017), Realities (2019), Truths (2020).

B3 is divided into the event formats festival (B3 exhibition, screenings, feature film series, short film series, conference programme, and campus/market (presentations, workshops, one-on-one meetings, pitchings).

The B3 honours established artists and young talents with the internationally renowned BEN Award. In the race for main and newcomer prizes are works by artists of the B3 Biennale who are particularly innovative in their use of new narrative techniques.

The B3 Biennial of the Moving Image is organized by the Offenbach School of Design (HfG). The B3 is supported by the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art (HMWK). The strategic partner of B3 is THE ARTS+.
