The Munich International Film Festival is the premier platform for German filmmaking. Its 41st edition, running from 28 June-7 July, will feature the premieres of 150 films from 53 countries, with a substantial number of guests in attendance. Films competing for the new CineWaves Award trophies in both the international and national competitions will be screened at 12 venues. This year also marks the return of the €100,000 CineCoPro Award, Germany’s most valuable co-production prize, after a four-year hiatus.

The 150 feature-length fiction and documentary films explore a wide range of human and societal themes. Approximately 40% of these movies are directed by women. All are being screened in Germany for the first time, with 62 productions celebrating their international, world or European premieres in Munich. Christoph Gröner, festival director, and Julia Weigl, artistic co-director, commented: “We’re taking the festival back to its roots by presenting genuine finds alongside star-studded cinema, but are doing this in new, grand and great locations. The return of the CineCoPro Competition makes the festival more complete, and CineYou, our laboratory for young audiences, finally gives us an avenue for making young people from Munich an active part of the festival.”

In the CineMasters Competition, featuring the best international films, a total of 14 titles are being showcased. Some recent highlights include The Substance [+lire aussi :
