{The Short Story}

About the Festival

The International Innovation Film Festival is a creative program dedicated to spotlighting the many challenges and progressive innovations that redefine how we share and tell stories and eventually, record history. Combining expert presentations about leading-edge technologies and innovations we present alongside thought-provoking, focused films from around the world.

The IIFF is the only festival in Switzerland, that explicitly focuses on new innovations and the challenges facing new innovations and technology. The IIFF is also currently Bern’s only film festival.

The IIFF is a film festival for the curious who want to explore innovations in a cool setting and get to know other interesting people there

Breakthroughs do not arise in ivory towers, but from a continual exchange of ideas, techniques, experiments, and results, that lead us to new discoveries. 

Collaboration is the life-blood of innovation and by educating people in a relaxed, social, and familiar atmosphere we extend this collaboration to countless more connections.
