Welcome to KINO/23, the German Film Festival in Hong Kong and Macao! This is the 25th edition of the German film festival, which was first held in 1998 under the name MAX!. 

This year we are once again showing a great choice of excellent new films from Germany: New German Cinema is marked by a strong presence of female directors, from the intense sibling drama "Kiss My Wounds" by Hanna Doose to Anika Decker's quirky comedy "Love Things". Among the German Masters, you'll find Fatih Akin's million-viewer success "Rheingold" as well as Christoph Hochhäusler's emotional drama "Till the End of the Night," which premiered at the Berlinale.

And we take a look Behind the Wall: For our wonderful opening film "From a Land That No Longer Exists”, we are pleased to welcome director Aelrun Goette in person for an audience talk.

The Goethe-Institut Hongkong celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, we invite you to re-encounter some of the great names of German cinema in the series Six Decades - Six Iconic Films, including Konrad Wolf, Wim Wenders and Tom Tykwer. Their films capture the spirit of an era and have become classics.

We look forward to welcoming you to this very special cinema experience at KINO/23!
