Following up the success of “The Festival of German Cinema” from 2013 to 2015, German Films and the Goethe-Institut are jointly hosting “The 4th Festival of German Cinema” in Beijing, Chengdu and Shenzhen. Prominent actors and filmmakers from Germany will come to China to present their movies to the Chinese audience under the motto of ‘when tomorrow comes’.
In addition to presenting a new perspective of German cinema via film screenings, workshops, roundtable discussions and other exclusive events will also be organized to encourage both experienced and young filmmakers from Germany and China to exchange knowledge and initiate mutual projects. The Festival aims to increase the popularity of German cinema among Chinese film professionals and the general public. It would arouse interests for Germany as a production site for films and strengthen the connection between German and Chinese filmmakers and media industries of both sides.
