LOLA favourites on tour
From April 16-22, the Lola Festival 09 will give cinemagoers from 18 German cities the chance to (re)discover on the big screen the Lola (German Film Awards) finalists for Best Film, Best Documentary and Best Youth Film.
These include Florian Gallenberger’s John Rabe [+see also:

film profile] (see Lola nominations news).
Screenings will be accompanied by meetings and discussions with audiences, who remain the most important critics in the eyes of the German Film Academy (which organises the event in collaboration with the Ministry of Culture).
Alongside the Lola Festival, the Lola Mobil minibus tour will offer further opportunities for interaction between filmmakers and viewers. Moreover, as part of Lola Visionen on April 20, the professionals behind the six Best Film nominees (Uli Edel, Dresen, Gallenberger, Caroline Link, Yildirim and Jerichow producer Florian Koerner von Gustorf) will gather in Berlin for a discussion with audiences about their work and German cinema.
The Lola awards ceremony will be held in Berlin on April 24.
