The German Film Office is pleased to present New Tales of Franz as part of its popular “Kids Kino” film series.
Register We recommend this film for children 7 years old and above.

It’s summer break, and Vienna is full of adventures just waiting to be discovered. But Franz’s summer is not off to a great start—his best friends Gabi and Eberhard won’t stop fighting. He can’t seem to split his time between the two friends, so why not stir up a little distraction? When Franz convinces Gabi and Eberhard that his peculiar neighbor, Frau Berger, is a wanted burglar, the trio throw themselves into a turbulent investigation that takes them all across the Austrian capital and brings unexpected secrets to light.

Based on the popular children’s book series by Christine Nöstlinger.

“[New Tales of Franz] is a film about friendship and the inestimable value of always being sincere [which] transforms a criminal hunt on the streets of Vienna into a beautiful essay about courage and honesty.” (Cinema Austriaco)

New Tales of Franz premiered at the 2023 Munich Film Festival.
