Palace Cinemas in collaboration with German Films is excited to present the 2019 German Film Festival. Building on the success of last year, this edition will screen 31 feature films, expanding to 15 locations and opening with Michael “Bully” Herbig’s Balloon.
With 29 Australian premieres and a festival line-up that includes box office hits and award-winning dramas straight from this year’s Berlinale, the festival is a fantastic celebration of German culture and filmmaking. Including productions from neighbouring Austria and Switzerland, the festival showcases the creativity and diversity of the region. From thrillers and historical productions to feel-good comedies, this year’s films will amuse, inspire and entertain.
Marking the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall in 2019 Palace Cinemas are pleased to have the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany co-presenting a contemporary selection of German films that take a new look back at the German Democratic Republic in our programme strand Tear Down The Walls.
The festival’s cultural partner, The Goethe-Institut, are again presenting KINO FOR KIDS, a showcase of six films for our younger audiences and families as well as co-presenting their “100 Years of Bauhaus” special.
The festival kicks off in Brisbane on the 30th of May, and will run until the 12th of June. You can check out this year’s programme and grab your tickets here.
