5TH EDITION OF KINO! FESTIVAL OF GERMAN FILMS IN NYC
Last year’s edition of KINO! in April was so successful that the festival will return to the spring dates again. This year’s new venue is one of the leading arthouse theaters in town – the recently opened state-of-the-art arthouse complex The Landmark at 57 West in Hell’s Kitchen – with more capacity and daily screenings for the festival from 6-12 April 2018. Programmed by an independent jury of leading industry professionals – Karl Rozemeyer (film journalist), Marian Masone (film curator, festival advisor) and Meghan Wurtz (distributor), the festival will present 10 full-length new feature films from 2017 – highlighting one of the German talents of the FACE TO FACE WITH GERMAN FILMS campaign. Centerpiece will be a silent film with live music. A special event is dedicated to the rise and success of German TV series. Short film buffs will love the NEXT GENERATION SHORT TIGER 2017 program that is also part of the line-up. New York audiences will have the opportunity to vote online for their favorite film – the KINO! 2018 Audience Award.
