German-made and co-produced films return in a nationwide festival to Australian cinemas showcasing the best cinematic talent Germany has to offer.
Presented by Palace Cinemas in collaboration with German Films, the program includes a contemporary selection of 31 feature-length films varying from award-winning dramas and box office comedies to documentaries and a selection of short films.
In order to celebrate the Bauhaus Centenary, the Goethe-Institut co-presents the documentary Bauhaus Spirit - 100 Years of Bauhaus by Niels Bolbrinker which will be shown in all 7 cities. A special treat for those interested in Bauhaus will be the introductions by leading Bauhaus-experts. The Goethe-Institut has asked academics in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane to share their expertise when introducing the film.
As in the past year, we present a special film program dedicated to families, children and teens. Presented by the Goethe-Institut, the Kino for Kids sidebar will provide a six-film feast for young audiences. This section particularly invites schools to attend the Festival to engage with German culture and learn the language.
