Graduate Show 2023
About the Graduate Show
Every year, the current graduates of the HFBK Hamburg present their final theses in a public exhibition. An external jury of experts selects the best work, which is awarded the coveted Karl H. Ditze Prize for the best thesis. In addition, the Graduate Show 2023 and the HFBK Film Prize of the Hamburg Cultural Foundation will be awarded.
As part of Final Cut, all final films made with funding from MOIN Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein will be presented in the auditorium of the HFBK.
13 July 2023, 7 p.m., Aulavorhalle
14-16 July 2023, 2–8 p.m. each day, free admission
The party of the Graduate Show 2023 is a place where all people are welcome and treat each other with consideration and celebrate. The awareness concept is firmly directed against sexist, racist, homophobic, transphobic or comparable assaultive behaviour and actively counters it. If you feel uncomfortable or observe that someone is behaving in an abusive way, you can contact the awareness team in confidence.
You will recognize the awareness team by pink vests and pink caps.
