Wunderbar. A celebration of German film© Kanopy

Celebrating German Film

​From “Beloved Sisters” to “A Coffee in Berlin” and “Young Goethe in Love,” from “The Blue Angel” to “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari”–We celebrated German-American friendship for one year with our partner Kanopy by bringing 48 German films to your screens. Under “Critically Viewed,” German and American film journalists introduce you to their favorite films. Goethe-Instituts and Goethe Pop Ups in the US also took part in the celebration by showing films, organizing film festivals, and inviting German filmmakers to speak.
