Presented by the Goethe-Institut,
co-presented with the Toronto Black Film Festival

In 2008, Berlin director Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) started to invite African filmmakers to write and produce their own stories. A decade later, his project One Fine Day Films has mentored 1000 filmmakers from 21 African countries. GOETHE FILMS highlights 6 Kenyan-German features that have come out of these collaborations and have won awards from Los Angeles to Rotterdam.
A showcase of new directions.
