German Film Week

Featured Films

Dear friends, moviegoers, and cineasts,

This year we like to cordially welcome you to the 1st edition of the GERMAN FILM WEEK! This September the curtain raises for the festival, with the star-studded “WHO AM I – No System Is Safe” (or WHO AM I – Kein System ist sicher), which became the first German thriller ranked no. 1 in the German cinema charts since the 80s. The film is centered on the gifted hacker Benjamin and his hacker group CLAY, that become more and more famous with fun guerilla actions causing increasingly serious problems. This is only a preamble to the many stirring themes in our festival this year.

The fine selection of films included in the GERMAN FILM WEEK showcases the best new releases of contemporary German cinema. From classic themes of love, loyalty, family and adventure to the grittier issues of identity or coping with the past, there is something for everyone in our festival.

Our main venues are Glorietta and TriNoma Cinemas and we are very pleased to announce Ayala Cinemas and the Film Development Council of the Philippines as our project partners for the festival.

Finally, my team and I would like to thank you all for your support. We hope you enjoy our festival as much as we have enjoyed putting it together for you. See you at the box office!

Dr. Ulrich Nowak
