The much anticipated German Film Festival dates have been rescheduled for Melbourne and will screen from Thursday 17 June through to Sunday 4 July 2021. If you already have tickets, you will be contacted by cinema staff to advise you of the revised screening details. Rest assured, they'll be in touch. Restricted access means they won't be able to accept calls but for any further enquiries, please use firstname.lastname@example.org Stay updated via social media. You can view the Program on the website or download it in pdf format.
You'll find the Melbourne Venues and Ticketing Info on the website, with films screening at The Astor Theatre, Kino Cinema, Pentridge Cinema and Palace Cinemas - Balwyn, Brighton Bay and Como. Unfortunately, the Opening Night Event on 17 June has already sold out. However, the Closing Night Event still has tickets available. Due to limited seating, it makes sense to get in early and grab your tickets so as not to be disappointed. See here for all Melbourne Special Events. The kids don't miss out either with Kino for Kids, presented by the Goethe-Institut.
Being the romantic and loving rom-coms, two films I'm definitely going to see are The Space Between The Lines and I'm Your Man. The Space Between The Lines is a modern love story that takes a mature and thoughtful look at the nature of human relationships. While trying to cancel her magazine subscription, Emmi's messages land in the wrong inbox. Leo informs her of her mistake, and so an extraordinary email relationship begins. The unavoidable question surfaces - will their virtual feelings survive the test of a real-life encounter? And what will happen if they do?
Both films are from the New German Cinema genre, with I'm Your Man going rogue with a romcom-sci fi. Recently separated forty-something Alma, a research scientist, participates in an extraordinary study. She must live with a human-like robot designed solely to be her ideal companion for three weeks. She is introduced to the unflappably upbeat Tom, a handsome AI creation who's programmed to adapt to her desires, making him her perfect life partner. Though disinterested in Tom and dismissive of the project overall, Alma discovers life can take us in unexpected directions. Now if neither of these storylines get you.... be sure to search out one or a few of many to suit your taste. There's something for everyone.
