festival dates 2022: January 12–16, 2022 +++ selection of films available for streaming now +++  


The NFF explores the contemporary world through music and sound. We search films that portray musicians, music, sound or noise as seismographs of our time, and speak of the possibilities and challenges of the Now. We screen documentaries mainly, but are open to feature films, short movies, video art, and experimental formats. Our goal is to nominate films that are getting close to people and phenomena. Films screened at the NFF have won important awards or were nominated at major international A festivals, some have been produced very DIY and low budget. We are especially interested in films by filmmakers from outside of Europe and the US.
