Series productions not only attract interest in the private sector, but also in the public. The aim of the Basel Series Festival is to show what filmmakers come up with and to bring them into contact with an interested audience and colleagues from Switzerland and abroad.

Why series in the cinema?

Because we will offer them in the best quality, on the big screen and in the comfort of an alternative cinema. Moreover, you can enjoy the unique atmosphere and share the experience with the audience, which is not possible at home on a smartphone or PC. We show all series in the original language with English subtitles.

Does the festival offer more than just the reputation of the series?

Absolutely. They'll have a chance to ask their own questions. There will also be a discussion round at the Humbug Club on the subject of "Serial Narratives".

I do not like thrillers, but is the festival still for me?

The diversity of genres is one of our priorities. That's why we select for you cross-thematic and cross-style series. You can look forward to social dramas, political series or comedies for young people. Do not expect Hollywood productions. Furthermore, we concentrate on productions from Eastern Europe that are not yet in the program of the usual streaming providers (see also  serialkiller.tv).
