We Are Openscreen
Openscreen a.s.b.l. is a Luxembourgish cultural association, which has a convention with the Ministry of Culture.
We focus our efforts on promoting inclusion and diversity through cultural work.
It all started with open screenings of short films in unexpected places. In 2014 the main drivers behind Openscreen, Tanja Frank and Carlo Thiel, founded the A.s.b.l. together with Tim Meiers and Claude Grosch. From then on Openscreen has grown and developed several different projects.
The classic screenings continue under the name Openscreen Classic. They are still open to all filmmakers and take place at interesting locations.
The other big project of Openscreen is the series of audio plays called Kappkino. The concept of Kappkino was created by Tanja Frank and from the beginning in 2017 Openscreen has already produced three audio plays plus a vinyl with theatre music.
In 2021 Openscreen started the series Doc & Talk with screenings of documentaries followed by discussions with the filmmakers and the audience.
The fourth project of Openscreen is the multilingual book Roff, combining text, collages and original music.
In 2022 Tanja Frank stepped down as President of Openscreen and Vessela Vencheva assumed the role of Director.
The present committee of Openscreen includes:
Maria Papamargariti, President
Frédéric Zeimet, Treasurer
Carlo Thiel, Secretary
Tanja Frank continues supporting the association. Tim Meiers and Nikola Todorov are honorary members and voluntary supporters.
