The GoetheForum has made it possible for us to expand our cultural programs and enables us to collaborate with our operational partners on more film festivals, forums, and other events, thereby providing you with a more comprehensive range of programs. Program highlights include recent German cinema hits and time-honored classics, rarely shown at theaters in the United States. At the GoetheForum, you can meet directors, actors, writers, cultural experts, and other special guests.
