German Film week in Bangalore

German cinema is booming – with the recent crop of films enjoying increased international attention and acclaim. This is reflected in invitations to festivals, Oscar nominations, international awards, role offers, license purchases, and audience figures.

The Goethe-Institut/Max Mueller Bhavan has established a tradition of bringing first-rate German films in all genres to Bangalore – features, documentaries, shorts, packages and children’s films. This engagement over the years culminated in the three highly successful and popular Indo-German Film Festivals that took place in 2003, 2004 and 2006.

The German Film Week is the logical successor to the Indo-German Festivals, now that the Bengalooru International Film Festival (BIFFES) has taken its place on the City’s annual cultural map. This year’s palette of award-winning films is an exciting blend of thought-provoking themes and pure entertainment.

This year the German Film Week is being organised in collaboration with German Films, the German national information and advisory centre for the promotion of German films worldwide and Suchitra Film Society, Bangalore.

The Festival would not have been possible without the enthusiasm of the main sponsor, Siemens Information Systems Ltd. and the support of Mercedes-Benz Research and Development India.

Last but most important, an appeal to the thousands of film fans in Bangalore: This is your Festival – enjoy it!
