Films are ambassadors of cultural diversity. Films whisk us away into unknown worlds. Films captivate, inspire and move us. They depict reality and create a new reality themselves. In films, we encounter familiar and foreign cultures. Films are a public service.

Our attractive range of the latest films, series and documentaries and great classic movies offers audiences an extensive selection of Swiss and international productions. Films, series and documentaries make up 23 % of the broadcasting time.


We also support numerous film festivals and events: whether it is the Locarno Festival, Visions du Réel in Nyon or the Short Film Festival of Switzerland in Winterthur, these occasions attract a broad audience eager to see film stars and movie-makers step up to the stage.
