The future belongs to the moving image

Since 2013, the B3 Biennial has been shaping the cross-genre and cross-national discourse on trends and developments of the moving image in the fields of art, cinema, TV, games, design, communication and immersion. The aim of the Biennial, launched in 2013, 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.

A cross-media moving image festival with film screenings, exhibitions, conference and workshop programs including competitive events, B3 is aimed at professionals from the creative and media industries, business, politics and science as well as the general public.

B3 is comprised of the event modules Festival (B3 Leading Exhibition, Screenings, Film Series, Short Film Series, Conference Program and Campus/Market (Presentations, Workshops, One on One Meetings, Pitchings).

B3 honours established artists and young talents with the internationally renowned BEN Award. Eligible for main and newcomer prizes are works by artists of the B3 Biennial that are particularly innovative in their use of new narrative techniques.

The B3 Biennial of the Moving Image is organized by the Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach (HfG) and funded by the Hessian Ministry for Science and Art (HMWK). Strategic partner of B3 is THE ARTS+.
