This year, Stockholm will also see a meeting organised by German Films with Swedish distributors for an exchange of views about their respective film markets.
The short films program Next Generation 2008 will be shown again this year at the film school in Denmark, while there will be screenings in regular cinemas in Sweden. In this way, German Films will be able to reach local students directly and give them an insight into the working methods of German film students.
