The double is on the way. We hope you enjoy the event!
The German Film Festival will light up screens at Palace Cinemas across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide from 22 May.
The program of 32 Australian premieres represents the strong and vital cinema from one of Europe's most prolific filmmaking nations, in collaboration with German Films and Goethe-Institut.
The opening selection, THE SILENT REVOLUTION, from acclaimed director Lars Kraume (The People vs. Fritz Bauer) is based on the 1956 true events in which a group of East German high school students stage a silent protest in class with far-reaching consequences.
Closing the festival two weeks later, is the new digitally restored version of WINGS OF DESIRE. Straight from the 2018 Berlinale the Wim Wenders' 1987 drama follows two angels perched high above Berlin who listen to the thoughts of the mortals below. Don't miss a visionary classic of German cinema on the big screen.
