A brand-new edition of the Filmkunstmesse (19-23 September) has just taken place in Leipzig and gathered together German film industry professionals who came to familiarise themselves with the films that will be available for theatrical release in the next few months. Around 1,000 cinema programmers, festival curators, distributors and journalists had the opportunity to watch up to 80 films represented by several distribution companies, which have already been premiered at international festivals such as Cannes. The rendezvous was organised by AG Kino.

AG Kino, which is one of the main representative bodies of the German film industry, hosted not only the film screenings, but also a programme packed with panels and workshops. One of them was titled “Cinema Vision 2030”, and it focused on the vital topic of the future of cinema. The participants discussed a series of measures that would help improve audience numbers in cinemas. In particular, they focused on how to attract young audiences.

As is the case every year, the Filmkunstmesse had several prizes to give out. In the international section, the main Award for Best Film went to Triangle of Sadness [+leggi anche:
