Filmfestival

The Norient Musikfilm Festival at Kino der Reitschule Bern is the main event of the Norient collective. It takes place each year since 2010. With changing topical or geographical focuses Norient is presenting a wide range from documentary till experimental movies to the public, covering music trends from all around the world.

For the Musikfilm Festival Norient selects movies with a close approach to the musicians and a deep insight behind the scenes without cursory stereotypes and platitudes. Many movies are low budget productions, others are licensed by well-respected production companies. The Norient Musikfilm Festival has become a real hotspot of the Swiss capital Berne and a popular platform for the exchange between the public, filmmakers and musicians from all around the world. For the framework program Norient collaborates with Bernese concert venues such as Rössli Bar, Club Bonsoir, bee-flat im Progr and the Frauenraum in der Reitschule. Since 2015 Norient is presenting editions of the Musikfilm Festival at Palace St. Gallen and since 2016 at Le Bourg Lausanne.
