German Film Week 2018

German Film Series 2018 © Goethe-Institut

June 25 - July 1, 2018

This year, the German Film Week once again brings a taste of the best of modern German cinema to our Bangkok audience. All the films have been screened at important festivals and showered with awards. Some of the movies to look forward to include “In the Fade”/“Aus dem Nichts“ ( Cannes Film Festival), “Western“ ( Cannes Filmfestival ), “Transit“ (Berlinale), “Beuys“ (Berlinale) and “Happy“ ( Dokfest Leipzig).
 
This year the films will be screened in small, independent cinemas rather than in large Multiplex cinemas, creating more of a festival atmosphere and meeting place for film-lovers. Along with the films, this year, the post-screening chats and discussions in pleasant surroundings come to the fore. 
 
We are fortunate to have the Bangkok Screening Room, the Oasis Cinema, Chang Chui and the Doc-Club Theatre in Warehouse 30 as partners. The auditorium of the Goethe-Institut will also serve as a screening venue during the Film Week. 
 
For the very first time, a series of documentary films will be screened in the evenings during the Film Week. Films, such as the Thai-German love story “Happy“, the portrait of the artist Joseph Beuys “ Beuys“ or the refugee tragedy “When Paul came over the Sea“, all give powerful accounts of remarkable real-life experiences. Don’t miss the chance to see these documentary masterpieces. 
 
We look forward to introducing you to the world of German cinema and hope that together we can enjoy a week of interesting discussions on the topic of modern cinema “made in Germany”!
