The CinEuro Upper Rhine project and Balimage are pleased to invite you to the tri-national workshop on writing “regional content” to be held on February 25, 2022 in Basel.

How can regional topics be integrated into films, how can stories be anchored in a region? What are the possibilities offered by the trinational Upper Rhine region, on the border between France, Germany and Switzerland?

This is what author Jan Galli (Freiburg i. Br./Berlin, among others author of the series “Bad Banks”), director Max Disbeaux (Strasbourg, author of the film “Fessenheim 75”), historian and ethnologist Markus Moehring (Director of the “Dreiland” museum) and journalist Peter Schenk will show you.


Part 1: “Reading” a region, identifying materials, stories and locations.

Part 2: Example “Fessenheim 75”, a feature film in development with a regional topic and an international theme

Part 3: The practice of experimentation: can “my” regional story reach people beyond the region? How to write universaly about local events?


The workshop is bilingual (German/French) with interpretation. Limited number of participants.
