From September 20 to September 30, Zurich is the place to be for film lovers. For the eighth time the Zurich Film Festival brings an interesting mix of international film premieres, independent productions, documentaries and special screenings to Zurich.

Big name stars such as John Travolta, Richard Gere and Til Schweiger will be in Zurich for the glamorous Award Nights – if you’re lucky, you might even get a glimpse of them on the red carpet!

myfriendfromzurich is especially looking forward to the films in the category “New World View” – this year it focuses upon the current cinematic oeuvre of Sweden.
