In the section titled "The State of Europe – My Own Private Europe", Cynthia Beatt will show A House in Berlin (Heartbeatt Pictures). Julian Radlmaier will present A Proletarian Winter's Tale (DFFB) in "The State of Europe – Grand Tour". Spectrum is featuring the German/Thai film Supernatural by Thunska Pansittivorakul (coproduced by Jürgen Brüning Filmproduktion), and Spectrum Shorts includes several German titles.
Finally, Rotterdam is dedicating a retrospective to the German documentary filmmaker Heinz Emigholz.
