13th German Films Previews in Dresden

75 international buyers from 31 countries were guests of the German Previews in Dresden last week (July 7 to 10). The event, organised by German Films, gave them the chance to see 17 new German productions – half of them being market premieres – over three days on the big screen at Dresden's UFA Kristallpalast. Other films were available for screening in an extensive DVD library. A varied programme of industry events encouraged networking between the buyers, over 20 sales companies representatives, and representatives of German films.

The evening programme gave the international guests different opportunities to meet with representatives of the German sales companies and other local professionals. The regional fund MDM (Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung) hosted the closing reception.

Various deals have already been concluded. Mariette Rissenbeek, managing director of German Films, was satisfied : "The German Films Previews have been a success for many years. The event is highly regarded by both buyers and sales companies. Year on year, the quality of the films screened has been maintained".

German Films created the German Films Previews in 2001. In past years, the event has been held in Munich, Cologne, and Hamburg.
