The 25th annual edition of Film|Neu, running November 2-5, 2017 at Landmark’s E Street Cinema, is a week-long showcase of new German-language cinema and the artists behind it.
What started out as a small festival 25 years ago is still healthy and strong, evidence that audiences are hungry for a rich variety of themes and genres that transform with new worlds and perspectives. This year’s opening film, The Young Karl Marx, brings history to life with a retelling of Marx’s early years. More recent history – the fall of the Wall – plays a role in In Times of Fading Light, starring Bruno Ganz. The Divine Order, Switzerland’s nomination for the Academy Awards, wraps up the festival. In between are documentaries and dramas, comedies and dark stories, short films and a European “Western.” Combined with special guests and events, these make for a strong festival of international cinema that isn’t to be missed.
Note: All films have English subtitles.
Film|Neu is a project of Goethe-Institut Washington, the Austrian Cultural Forum, and the Embassy of Switzerland, with support from german films.
