Frame - Celebrating Cinema

The Frame is "Home of Zurich Film Festival" and gives the festival a year-round presence. We present a diverse program of upscale mainstream, auteur films, documentaries, family films and Swiss premieres. Many films are embedded with background information by ZFF's Programming Team, premieres are anchored and complemented with exciting events. In short, we celebrate cinema in all its facets. Our 6 cinema theaters and our lounge can also be rented for cultural events, corporate events or private celebrations.
