SWISS to host the latest Flying Film Festival

SWISS Business Class

From the beginning of November until the end of December, SWISS will be showing 13 short documentary films alongside its usual inflight entertainment programme aboard its long-haul flights.

The “Flying Film Festival”, which is a collaboration between SWISS and the Fribourg-based Le Système D association, was first staged in 2015 and has been repeated every other year since, making this Festival the third of its kind.

The Festival is designed to support and promote innovative young directorial talents in the short documentary and docu-animation genres. Thanks to the team-up with SWISS, the Festival can screen these impressive works to travelers in all classes on SWISS’s long-haul services from and to Zurich and Geneva. The Flying Film Festival has also proved increasingly popular among SWISS guests.



A varied programme

The selection for this year’s Flying Film Festival extends to 13 varied short documentary films from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, France, India, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Portugal and Slovenia. Details of the programme and the films’ directors will be found at or

The Festival will also see the awarding of two jury prizes – the “Golden Wings” and the “Silver Wings” – to its two best films in January 2020. The jury for this year’s Festival comprises Caroline Bachmann, artist and professor of painting & drawing at the HEAD art school in Geneva, Patrick Kovaliv, programme director at Cinema Eden in Château-d’Oex, Julia Bendlin, arts editor at Swiss Radio & TV, and the programme committee of the Fribourg-based CinéBrunch Regards D’Ailleurs association.
